More top-line acts ere using this song than any other number on the stage. You can use it as a single, double, quartette or any old way. It's a great big hit. 



This song is going to be the <Jbiggest ballad hit in years;- Watch it grow like all the Sterling and Von Til2er ballads: 




Full of ginger. Full of life. A great Lyric. A great Melody. Harry Von Tilzei's "CUBANOLA GLIDE" started the ragtime craze. This, is a better song. 



This is undoubtedly the biggest ballad hit in thecountry, ,and it will be lor some time to= come. .Published in seven keys; also a Bass Solo.

Fun. 21. 
ficl'lom lina n new management run up 
Mich a record its that of Norninn McKlunoll 
and Frederic Whelcn, nt the Vaudeville — I 
should snv tliey lmv nvernged a piny a 
month. "Helen of the High Hand," which 
(bey did on Tuesday, looks as though It 
might have lictter luck tlinu Its predecessors, 
thanks mnlnly to a flue pcrformnnce by Mr. 
McKlnnell, us James Ollcreu Shaw, a typical 
character of the pottery district, In the North 
Midlands, which Arnold Bennett depicts 
with such fascinating skill In his novels — 
this one lias been adapted to the stage by 
ltlchard Pryce. 

OUerca Shaw had added cottage to cottage 
until he bad become a very rich man. but 
be contentedly lived In a mean bouse, ill 
tended by a slovenly servant, alternating his 
rent-round with a game of bowls and the 
plaintive performance of the Hallelujah chorus 
on a concertina. To him arrived his distant 
rclntlvc, Helen, a maBterful and sclf-conlldcnt 
young woman. She bad a little money, tbe 
profession of a school mistress, an extrava- 
gant taste In dress, and an uncouth lover 
with whom she had agreed to differ. Uncle 
OUcren Shaw made his young relative the 
offer of a home. He was tired of his shrew- 
ish, dishonest housekeeper, and Just a little 
afraid ot a stnnrt widow ranging her forces 
Against Mm. But Helen shouted with laugh- 
ter at tbe idea of the small, stiff parlor, tbe 
bedroom that would hardly contain her hnt 
boxes, the mean housekeeping. The old man, 
fascinated by her presence In his home, by 
her domestic skill and Its ensuing comforts, 
persisted, till at last Helen began to quote 
terms, which were high. There were many 
llerce encounters era the high hand became 
definitely the upper hand. Uncle OUcren 
Shaw bought and equipped n beautiful old 
country house. There he lnstnlled Helen, 
her most unpleasant lover summoned to her 
Bide again, and he allowed her to put nt any 
rate a portion of his vast Income Into gen- 
erous circulation. The old man really de- 
served a better fate. 

Marie Tempest's new play Is not a success. 
Norrey's Council says ho got tho Idea from 
Fielding's "Joaoph Andrews." This Is un- 
necessarily honest, for his debt to Fielding 
is not greater than was thnt of Itnrrle, in 
respect of the Admlrabla Crlchton. In both 
cases the hero is n serving man. Hut Bnrrlc 
switched off nt the right minute. Mr. Cou- 
ncil makes his whimsical, aristocratic hero- 
ine actually innrry her footman, and it is 
not an ngrcenble situation, even though tho 
youth bo well favored and "self cultured." 

Two now sketches were Installed at tho 
Palace on Monday night. One, "L'Imprc- 
Earlo." appealed to Alfred Butt In Paris. It 
li brilliantly played by Scvcrln-Mnrs, but Is 
painful. A young actor. Insane, escapes 
from a sanitarium and makes Ms way to tho 
flat ot a charming actress, who believes him 
to be nn Impresario, due to call, and proceeds 
to sine to Mm. The poor fellow is moved to 
tears and maniacal laughter. Finally he It 
recaptured by the sanitarium attendants. 
"Itlvols for Rosamund," by Arnold Bennett, 
li quite unworthy of tbo author, it Is a three 
cornered discussion, on the eve of Rosa- 
mund's marriage, between herself, her proa- 
Jiecttve husband and an old lover ; poor stuff, 

Israel Zangwill. defending "Tbe Melting 
Pot," says the advanced playwright Is apt to 
be too superior. "Because a drama has a 
dc-flnlto aim, becauses It preaches and dis- 
cusses n big subject, are no reasons why It 
should not contain humor and tears. That, 
1 think, will be the nature of the play of the 
future — n serious subject treated theatrically, 
with elemental effects and expertly studied 
technique." Tho report is that "The Melting 
Pot" Is doing very well here. 

Francois Celller. the long time Savoy con- 
ductor, left rather less than $15,000.

by tbe chorus, la supposed to wave an American 
Hag, but In view of tbe fact that tbe show was 
traveling in Canadian territory, tbe Canadian (lag 
and the American Dag were placed side by side

So much has been written recently about 
L. Wolfu Gilbert, one of America's brightest 
lytic writers, that his past performances can 
be summed up In a way that a well known 
rangazln? writer treated Uio leading Ameri- 
can lyric writers. "In speaking of l>. Wolfe 
Gilbert, one need only to look up tho past 
record of this young man to know bis stand- 
ing In the music world. He 1b without ques- 
tion the cleverest and most versatile of 
American lyric writers. He Is a writer who 
does not confine himself to a certain stylo 
of lyrics, but ha* a range from the ordinary 
ragtime song to grand opera. Although ho 
has turned out raoro than a dozen million 
copy sellers, be is yet In tho prime of life 
and wonderful things are expected of him In 
the future. Chief among his past surceases 
arc : 'Mammy Jinny's Jubilee,' 'Ynu Did, Ynu 
Know You Did,' 'What Would I Do Without 
You' and 'You're the Fairest Mttlo Daisy.'" 

The P. A. Mills Pub. Company, Hr. Gil- 
bert's publishers, arc at the present time on 
an advertising campaign that lias seldom 
been attempted by a music publisher It em- 
braces an expenditure of over twenty thou- 
sand dollars, exploiting Mr. Gilbert's two 
Idlest songs, "Camp Meeting Hand" and 
"She's IinnolD? Her Heart Away," written 
In collaboration with Lewis W. Mulr and 
Kerry Mills. Hoth gongs have been on the 
market hut a short time and have shown up 
so wonderful that Mr. Mills decided that n 
large advertising campaign was the only 

{imner thing as a token of regard for what 
>c thlnki ere two of tho greatest songs ever

("Bed Onion.") 

Ir THINGS keep going as they are theia 
won't be anybody In the carnival business 
tot a lot of "near managers." The business 
Med* first class Independent showmen, ca- 
yable of producing shows of merit. There 
are plenty of first class managers that woull 
■lake room for showmen, and, besides, a first 
♦lass Independent showman can make more 
none/ In a season than any ten men who 
lave nothing behind them but the desire to 
te a manager. 

Havb you got such a thing In your pocket 
as a gold or sllrer carved wagon front? If 
aot. get one. Many of them seem to have 
plenty of them laying around loose. Mana- 
gers, why not build some real shows to to 
leblnd those fronts? 

Nat Reisb ajtd Johnny J. Jones should 
snake a grand combination together. We caa 
frondly say that we were the first to sus- 
picion this affiliation. Nat and Johnny J., 
allow us to wish you well. Another thirty- 
car carnival added to the excitement. 

Ravincs or A "xeab kanaqeb." — Wanted : 
One more that don't conflict. How can any- 
thing conflict with something that you don't 
fossess? Every man Is entitled to a chance 
to Bhow what he can do, but for why do you 
continue season after season to operate along 
Impossible lines? Aa soon as those "one 
nore show that don't conflict managers" get 
lack behind those hamburger stands, the bet- 
ter off the carnival business In general will 
te. No wonder showmen like P. J. Mundy 
•ecame disgusted and retired from the busi- 
ness, and C. W. Tarker decided to specialize 
to the manufacture of riding devices. 

TO toono fbbss agents. — In pre- 
paring wrlte-up9 for publication In amuse- 
nent Journals you would make a bigger bit 
with the profession In general and would 
to yonr manager more good and cause him 
fess reverse criticism if you would conflno 
your write-ups to actual facts. If you can 
lot tell the troth about the size, merit and 
amount of business done by the carnival that 
yon are with, It would be far better to keep 
illent and even to lose your position than 
lo embelish the troth In a manner la which 
»me of you are doing. Build up vour repu- 
tation on truth and veracity, and It won't 
le long before you will be In demand by 
■rpresentatlve carnival managers. If R«d 
Onion does not make himself clear In this 
matter •write him and he will -write this para- 
graph all over again, as many times as H 
accessary, to make you clearly understand It.

George 'Washington's Birthday Ole- 
brutloii, Laredo, Tex., Feb. 14-35. 
Ladero la one hundred and fifty- three 
miles, via the International and Great North- 
ern Railroad, almost due South of San An- 
tonio in Webb Country, Southeastern part of 
the Lone Star State, on the Rio 
River, which Is tho dividing line between tha 
United States and Mexico. 

This thriving border city hag a population 
something like 15,000 souls, eighty per cent, 
of which, we are told, are Mexican or of 
Mexican extraction. 

The buildings are characteristically Hex- 
lean In architecture, the streets are very 
narrow, numerous parks and olazis are scat- 
tered tboughout the city, Mexican habits and 
customs dominate the social and business 
life of the community, some of which are so 
radically different from the American way of 
doing things that your curiosity Is aroused 
to such an, extent as to causo you' to more 
carefully investigate the environs. 

Directly opposite Laredo, Tex., Is Nuevo 
Laredo, Hex., which, under normal condi- 
tions, is said to have a population of five 

An International bridge connects the two 
cities In ibe centre of which la a tablet 
marking the dividing lino between the United 
States and Mexico, whereon Is inscribed the 
articles of the treaty made between the 
United States and Mexico in 1841. 

The contrast in conditions between tho 
two Laredos 4s very marked. 

The Laredo on the American side enjoyi 
unbounded prosperity, while the other Is 
being laid low by the ravages of war and Its 
attendant demoralizing Influences — yet only 
a narrow steam of water divides them. 

The celebration 4n honor of the birth of 
the father of our country has been given In 
this city for the past sixteen years, under 
tho auspices of the Yaqul Tribe No. 4, I. O. 
R. M. (Bod Men), and at all times receiving 
the full support of the local merchants ana 
business men. 

This event Is also the time and occasion 
for the gathering of tho men higher up In 
the affairs of the I. O. It. M., who come to 
this city each season from all parts of Texas 
to lend their support In making the George 
Washington Birthday Celebration a success. 
For the past four seasons the Southern 
Amusement Co. has held the contract to fur- 
nish the amusement features, and it was 
with the sanction of the Southern Amuse- 
ment Co. that the Mlller-Lacbman Shows 
were permitted to present their attractions, 
which wero In every way all that could bo 
desired for such an occasion. 

For reasons best known to Don C. Steven- 
son, manager of the Southern Amusement 
Co., their attractions did not make the date. 
Laredo Is the only city or town la Texa* 
that celebrates the birth of the father of our 
country In such a befitting manner. 

AU streets and public business buildings 

were decorated in red, white and blue bunt- 
ing, and feitoonod WlCi red white and Ma* 
electric lights. . - 

_ All business was suspended, and every In- 
habitant being attired la bi» holiday rai- 

Although, programmed for five days the 
real celebration was confined to one day. 
The twenty-second of February being on Sun- 
day, the big features were held over and 
given Monday, Feb. 23, when the grand street 
pageant was presented to erpectant thou- 
sand, in the form of a civic, military. In- 
dustrial and fraternal review, wliich was 
moro than a mllo long, and passed through 
the principal thoroughfares of the city. 

Prior to tho formation of tho parade the 
local Tribe of Red Men gathered In front 
of the City Hall, where the Mayor of Laredo, 
Robert MeCoinb, by proxy, presented cio key 
of the city to Pocahontas, after which a 
response was made by Hon. Joseph Ryan, 
Past Great Sachem I. O. R. M.. of Texas. 

Following this. In the afternoon, were 
other local events. Including a burlesque bull 
tight Each and every ovent revealing some- 
thing unique and distinctively of local mo- 
ment and atmospjcre. Tho whole affair being 
a wonderful success.

engagement in Laredo, Tex, Saturday, Feb. 
14, to continue sixteen daya, with all of the

Seen and Heard In Laredo. 

The Mexicans bare some very set rule! 
and customs regarding the Intermingling of 
the sexes at public gatherings. Strange 
sights confront you at every turn during 
carnival thne and other events. Owing to 
the different clashes, tbe crowds are divided, 
and they form a solid line, and they trav.-l 

Generally two abreast and march around tho 
'lazas In a circle, women going In one direc- 
tion and the men In the other, passing 
Jiarallel with each other, and -when the oh- 
ect of their affection or admiration passes 
they flirt with each other and pass notes, 
bat men and women aro never seen together 
at public gatherings, unless married. This 
promenading Is called "milling," and tho 
custom Is probably as old as the HpanNh 
race Itself. 

Around the Market Plaza there aro Innum- 
erable venders' booths of all descriptions. 
Gating, fruit, confectionery and refreshment 
stands. The Mexicans, as a race, are very 

2 tentative, but among tbo lower classes 
of confine their gambling to penny propo- 
sitions, and aa a result you will find many 
wheel games that market their wares by 
charging from one to Ave cents a turn. You 
can And tho children and grown-ups alike, 
phylng these games for fruit, candy, pea- 
nuts, and bottled sodas. Tbo writer favr 
one stand that was a combination of fruit, 
candy, peanuts and soda water. A peanut 
Icing tho smallest prize and a botrlo of soda 
being tho largest prize. 

George Pendarrls, of Houston, Tex, was 
noticed among the visitors. 

There was no confetti allowed during the 
celebration. Plenty of noise makers and 
ticklers were in evidence. 

II. B. Danville manipulated the situation 
to that everybody made some money. There 
wore at least one hundred "CCiump stands" 
on the Plazas.

Saw Antonio, Tex., Feb. 25. 
Editou New York Clipper, 

Deab Sir: Yon will please find a short 
story pertaining to your correspondent, Will- 
iam Judklns Hewitt, better known as "Red 

Laredo's annual celebration this year, was 
greater In many points than it ever was be- 
fore. Of the five days that presented spe- 
cial events In the celebrated. T, 0nion City," 
there was no day enjoyed any more than 
"Red Onion Day" by the showmen or tho 
natives. iHls Highness, Red Onion, arrived 
in Laredo the morning of Feb. 21, at 7.80. 
He was mot at the depot by the carnival band 
and over one hundred of his friends. He 
was taken to the Hotel Bender and there 
given an onion breakfast, consisting of an 
onion stew, onions and small steak, and 
onion omelet He went fairly well at the 
omelet and steak and onions, but fell on the 
stew. He -was from there taken to the 
bridge and led into Old Mexico by Chief 
Onion Falrley, Captain of the Onion Guards 
Dr. Danville, with a company of fifty smaller 
onions. In Mexico he was introduced to 
General No Savs as 'the official war corre- 
spondent of the amusement world, and a man 
whoever was known for his peaceful methods 
end great sincerity in writing or giving 
nothing but truthful reports. At this tho 
general answered that he thought that he 
must not be a representative of the Ameri- 
can press, -which we convinced him he was. 

Returning to Laredo we were met at the 
bridge by Jakey Davis, Manning B, Pletz, 
Jewel I Casper and Oscar Noble, who acted 
as flower (onions) boys, and a host of others, 
showering him, with flowers (onions) when 
ho was mounted on the water wagon and 
led to the carnival grounds, where the shows 
were assembled around £>o City Hall. As 
the picture will show. Red seemed to enjoy 
this ride, and I believe ho was prouder than 
President Wilson was when ho was inaugu- 
rated. The band played "Dixie'' and an 
"Onion March" that was written by Prof. 
Webb, which must have appealed greatly to 
the small boys, as It mostly consisted of long 
chords, short chords, dls-chords and many 
ether hideous strains or sounds that can 
only be produced In classics. 

-A brief synopsis or imaginary scene of 
Red Onion loading tsha parade. When the 
band played "Dixie" and tho clumsy little 
flower girls strewing onions in Onion b path- 
way, a multitude of visitors, and the thou- 
sands of showmen seemed to soy in unison, 
"Long live onions," and closing I wish to 
say that tho many will Imagine wCien they 
tee the coming picture that the ladies did not 
participate In tho reception of tho biggest 
Onion In .all the world. But there was a 
specially arranged program by the ladies of 
the combined carnival companies, namely: 
Southern Amusement Co., Laohman A Miller 
Combined -Shows, De Kreko Bros., and a score 
of Independent concession men's wives gave 
Red Onion a Pink Tea Reception, in Teddy's 
tent It was an exclusive affair, and the 
writer coud not get any of do program from 
Mrs. Lachman, Mrs, Do Kreko, Mrs. Paget 
Mrs. Desmond, Mrs, Foster, or from any of 
the other ladles, nor even Red himself, but 
I heard It whispered that he received a sofa 
pillow and somo other soft and beautiful 

G resents In the way of drawn work and 111- 
gre work, as the ladies seemed to think 
that Ittd Onion is about to go the same way 

that tils old and esteemed friend Walter 
Stanley did „ „ „ 

Red put In every half hour of bis time 
while visiting to a great advantage, and I 
know tbat Tna Clipper has made a host of 
new friends with the natives of Laredo, Tex., 
and Mexico both, and the words of praise 
tbat were heard from everyone connected 
with the different enterprises of amusements 
at the celebration were many and sincere, 
lied announced that he would leave at 7.80 
Sunday evening. The boys had arranged a 
mulligan stag down at the Lachman A Miller 
cars, and had him arrested and put in jail 
until after train time, as they believe Red 
end llko him, they would not take any 
chances, and they got the good Chief Des- 
mond to put him in jail an hour and twenty 
minutes. Red at flrst was a little peeved, 
but down at the cars when he received the 
third degree of tbe Root Beer Club, be seemed 
well satlsQed and promised to Be a real live 
booster for the organization by getting his 
many friends to join. Col. Geo. P. Donlman 
gave Red the work in a real quiet way, ap- 
preciating Red's delicate disposition, bat 
gave it all In a very effective manner. 

The stag party closed at 8 a. m. by all 
present singing "Auld Lang Syne" and "Hes 
a Jolly Good Fellow." Truly yours, Manning

The .patrons here arc being regaled from 
week to week by dancing act», which repre- 
sent the most proficient performers, and who 
are skilled in dancing movements that have 
hoconio the popular craze over nearly tbe 
entire world. So, while this dancing erase Is 
en, it Is only natural that the managers 
should give their patrons a vlnv of all the 
prominent disciples of the terpslchoreon art. 

Joan Sawyer and John Jarrott, who have 
established themselves as firm favorites In 
theatres farther down town, bead the bill 
here this week la modern dances that were 
received enthusiastically at the matinee of 
March 2. All their dances were applauded 
unstintedly, following In this order: "Aero- 
plane Waltz," "Three in One," "MaxUe," 
'Congo Tango" and the "Turkey Trot" 

Perennially bright, an entertainer to ber 
flnger tips, and a woman who brings warmth 
and gladsome laughter to her audiences on 
all occasions is Fannie Brlce, who holds an 
important program position here this week. 
There was a royal welcome awaiting ber 
first appearance, and for about twenty mln- 
ntes It was Just one round of laughter and 
applause, with everybody happy- Her songs 
and burlesque Imitations place her in n class 
by herself. 

B. A Rolfe's superb musical production, 
entitled "Arcadia," was the musical gem or 
tbe bill, and the artistic manner of its pres- 
entation would achieve success even though 
the talents of the people engaged in the affair 
were not of such marked proficiency. It 
made a strong hit and was highly appre- 
ciated by the big audience. 

Hoey and Lee as character parodists of 
popular songs, and patter which was funny 
all the way, were recalled for many encores. 
Their parodies were all to the merry, and in 
their fine ot work they have but few com- 

Bobble Gordone appeared in her classy 
posing act. presenting a series of statue pic- 
tures which were a feast to tbe eye. 

Alax and Mabel Ford gave one of the best 
dancing acts seen here this season. Their 
three dances won the applause for them In 
volumes, and their neat costuming is a credit- 
able feature of a fine dancing number. 

Arthur Hoops, Ruby Raymond and com- 
pany appeared in their sketch, wherein two 
crooks In a plot to rob a dealer In mines are 
outwitted by their supposed female accom- 
plice. The tables arc turned, and their vk- 
tim upsets their plans and geta the young 
woman to consent to marry him. The sketch 
was well presented, and the audience llket It. 

Burley and Hurley did comedy acrobatics 
and gave a new line of patter that went over 
Is fine shape. In the character of an Eng- 
lish "dude* and a braw little Scotchman, 
they were Irresistibly funny. 

Rafayettc'B animal novelties, composed of 
a group of canines possessing nearly human 
Intelligence, opened the fine bill with a series 
of feats, several of wblch bad never before 
been seen on this stage. The act Is entirely 
too good for the number one position of a

Lonnncre (H. H. Frazec, mgr.)— The

on Monday night, March 2, with this east :

George Scarborough, the author of "The 
Lure" and "At Bay, made his bow as a pro- 
ducing manager on Monday night, March 2, 
when he presented his third play, "The Last 

We have had many plays in tbe past deal- 
ing with political and judicial corruption, 
but none of them have been quite so daring 
as "The Last Resort." If we are to bellevo 
Mr. Scarborough (and we aro assured that 
tbe main incidents in the play are founded 
on facts which came under his observation 
while Jn the Secret Service) many of the 
judges on our highest courts are dishonest, 
and those that are honest have their hands 
tied by corporations and political bosses. 

It is not surprising that many managers 
refused to produce this play, and the author 
was therefore compelled to present it himself. 

Mr, Scarborough has written an Interest- 
ing but not 8 convincing play. We doubt If 
it will prove successful as a two dollar attrac- 
tion. On tbe cheaper circuits it will proba- 
bly "clean up" a lot ot money for its author, 
for It Is really an old time melodrama, with- 
out the heroic speeches and pistol shots. 

The play has for its chief character, Rich- 
ard Osborne, a corporation lawyer, who has 
been engaged to ruin Sberldan Holt, a rich 
young lawyer who is taking up, without fees, 
the legal fights of the poor against railroads. 
Osborne arranges with a conuut judge named 
Prendergast, to bring about the young law- 
yer's disbarment for contempt of court, 
which offense Prendergast forces him to 
commit. The Judge sentences him to Jail and 
orders his disbarment 

Holt takes his case to the Appellate Court. 
Osborne manages to get Into the private 
consultation rooms of me Appellate Court and 
orders Justices Haskell and Alexander around 
as if they were office boys. He even goes so 
far as to dictate their opinion in the Holt 
case. Bat Chief Justice Macon remains true 
to his high office and orders Osborne leave 
the room. All of tho conversation has been 
overheard by Frances Ellison, a newspaper 
woman, wbo is also Holfs sweetheart. She 
had been biding In the telephone booth and 
had taken down the talk In shorthand. The 
lawyer and the corrupt lawyer, and tho dis- 
honest justice charge her wiEi burglary and 
she Is found guilty and Is sentenced to 
prison for five years. 

Holt is also returned to jail, and from 
his cell he directs his campaign for governor. 
He, of course, eventually wins, the girl Is 
released on ball, tbe corrupt Judges have been 
removed, Osborne gets bis deserts, and the 
Chief Justice performs the wedding ceremony 
of Holt and bis sweetheart. 

George Fawcett was Osborne, tbe corrupt 
corporation lawyer, who even made war on 
women in order to carry out his plans. 
Despite the fact that he slipped up on his 
lines once or twice, he gave a capital per- 
formance. In roles such as this one, Fuw- 
cett Is superlatively good. 

Wilson Melrose, as Sheridan Holt, ployed 
with distinction. He is a capital actor who, 
for some reason or other, is not seen often 
enough on tbe New York stage. He has a 
splendid speaking voice, a commanding pres- 
ence, and speaks distinctly, wblch Is, Indeed, 
a novelty In tbe theatre these days. 

Olive wyndham was sweet and charming 
as Frances Ellison, but was unequal to her 
big scene In the last act 

Richard Barbee, as Billy Ellison, made 
much of bis one scene in the third act 

Mark Price was dignified as the Chief 
Justice, but his make-np was very poor. 

The others in tbe cast have small roles. 

The scenes showing tbe Justice's Chambers 
were richly mounted, and the throwing of 
the election returns on tbe wall ot the cell 
for the Imprisoned candidate for governor to 
read was well worked oat. Eeloef. 




Manager Gus has a varied and speedy bill 
at the Fifth Avenue this week and, con- 
sidering the blizzard that blew in with the 
Initial show of the week, Monday, March 2, 
the house was In good spirits, with the 
vision ot old March blowing out like a Iamb 
and an early Spring. They enjoyed every 

Paul Fetching and company opened the 
show in a refreshing oddity, "Schneider's 
Musical Garden." (See New Acts next week.) 

It was a reviving treat to watch and bear 
those two winsome girlies. Myrtle and Daisy. 
They claimed a goodly share of the "hand" 
thing with their dainty way of singing and 
dancing, and every bit about them Is grace- 
ful and tidy to set off the good looks 
each bas been endowed with. The blonde 
girl Is a clever pianist and Dinger, and the 
oark girlie Just ber equal. Well, I guess you 
think we liked Myrtle and Daisy. Wo do, 
and so should all future audiences. 

Raving Nell McKlnley sang and extracted 
nut amusement to extraordinary favor. 

Joe Keaton continued attempting to make 
tho rather larger Buster behave, but Buster 
slips "Pop" a few of tbe medicine he's been 
brought up on, and with Myra, why, they 
Just swept things clean for satisfaction. 

'Louis Mann, with a large and capable 
company, Including Emily Ann Wellman, du- 
plicated former laughing successes with a 
version ot "Elevating a Husband." 

Wellington Cross and Lois Josephine, that 
conple of rollicking singers and dancers, 
slipped away another success into tbe old 
trunk, and Rose Marguerite pat a touch of 
class to the show's finish, with tho assistance 
of ber magnificent white horse and chubby 
pony, in graceful poses. 

Joe Cook, the "one man vaudeville show," 
held op his billing to a fine verdict Tod.

The play (written twenty-eight years ago) 
Is by this time so antiquated that no reason 
why it was unearthed can be seen, and the 
stale Jokes and equally stale plot could 
produce scarcely a smile off and on. There 
were, however, three factors that made it 

rsslble to lire through the performance, 
e.. the acting of Hansl Arnstacdt, Grete 
Meyer and Heinrich Marlow, a trio worthy 
of tbe highest praise. Besides, the two 
ladies showed a goodly number of upto-date 
and becoming costumes, an added attraction 
universally appreciated. Fri. Arnstaedt 
proved that she is also an excellent emo- 
tional actress ; may we soon bave an oppor- 
tunity to see ber in a more appreciative 
part, She deserves tbe reputation she enjoys 
abroad, fully. Herr Hatthaes took good rare 
of tbe clumsy, middle-aged country gentle- 
man, while llcrr Watdan was altogether oat 
of place, being far too old and stout for his 
part. The rest of tho cast did well in minor 
roles. Bcrollna. 


Hudson (Henry B. Harris' Estate, tDgra.) 
— What Would You Dot a four act play by 
Augastln Macilugb, produced Monday even- 
ing, March 2, with this cast: 

Ethel Halworth Loutso Drow 

A Butler John I.. Arthur 

Herbert Hostage Milton Silks 

Amy Hostage Gladys Wynno 

Alice Bessie Barrlscale 

Robert Jenkins A. Byron Bcasley 

Howard M. Smote Richie Lias 

Mrs. Lispanard Halworth Matt le 'Russell 

Tom Gllfau Karl Bitter 

Kato ..Alice Carrlngton 

A. B. Maynard Robert MacKay 

It is almost unbelievable that a clever 
writer of Ingenuous comedy situations and 
brilliantly humorous dialogue, such at Au- 
gustus MaoHugh proved himself to be In the 
turning out of his initial success, "Officer 
000," coold bave constructed sued an abso- 
lutely absurd and inartistic affair as "What 
Would You Do?" Possibly tho author's forte 
is realistic farce, at any rato It would seem 
so, after a casnal resume of the good and 
bad points of bis first serious drama. 

Of the latter there are many glaring and 
noticeable faults, which would Indicate that 
this piny was not exactly a recent effort, but 
possibly one ot his very first brain dilldren. 

To be sure, there Is much to be said in 
praise, too, especially of tho efficiently drawn 
characters and the working into tho plot of 
numerous little life-like touches tbat evidence 
tbe keen observer of life In New York. 

The play starts off slowly as light comedy, 
gradually dissolves into melodrama, ana 
nearly ends up as a rustic idyll, with a 
strong sprinkling of farce. 

Herbert Hostage, bank clerk, possessed ot 
a three thousand a year job and a wlfo with 
five thousand a year Inclinations, is in- 
duced by this mercenary little woman to 
speculate In Wall Street on tbe Up of one 
Howard M Smote, who, according to tho 
program, is a multi-millionaire. Howard is 
also a very wicked gentleman. 

Robert Jenkins, a magazine writer, is a 
friend of tbe family, who has Herbert Hos- 
tage's best Interests at heart, and naturally 
being a youth of sophistication, wisely co'in- 
eelsHerbcrt against the Investment flyer. 

Tbe wife's fondness for the luxuries of 
life determines tbe young bank clerk, and he 
dips Into the dizzy whirl of high finance and, 
of course, wins, first tune out. They always 
do. So far so good. But, excited with the 
first taste of pnrcbaseable pleasures, the 
wife urges further ventures in the financial 
jungle, with the natural resultant climax. 

In the second act we find Herbert despond- 
ent and ready to commit suicide. No wonder. 
The poor love-lorn youth has stumbled and 
fallen hard Naturally a bank clerk with 
access to tho money drawer tnkes the 
simplest coarse of action, whlcli moans In this 
instance that Herbert has helped himself to 
$50,000 worth of someone else's property ln> 
a vain effort to recoup his losses. 

Tho magazine writer. Bob, Is a resource- 
ful chap, however, and after a consultation 
be puts a plan Into effect that is virtually 
a live or die effort In brief the bank em- 
ployeee Is Instructed to "borrow" a half mil- 
lion dollars in securities. With tbe help 
of friend Bob this is Invested and the 
market, taking tho hoped for turn, put the 
easily Influenced Herbert $300,000 ahead of 
tbe game. Meanwhile the multi-millionaire 
has been quietly endeavoring to steal Her- 
berts wife, not satisfied with having tried 
vainly to plot bis financial and social ruin. 

Herbert and Bob happen in at an oppor- 
tune moment and catch Smote violently 
hugging tho resisting Mrs. Hostage. A scene, 
in which both are denounced In highly melo- 
dramatic fashion— r'You villain, you bsve 
broken op my home," etc.— follows. Mrs. 
Hostage proves satisfactorily that, while she 
bas been slightly indiscreet, she has been 
true to ber husband. In the strict sense of 
the word. 

'Herbert has quit winner with $300,000, 
which anyone will concede Is a nice little 
bankroll. This be proffers to his wife, who 
calmly accepts as if it were live or ten dol- 
lars. This acceptance shows him clearly 
the shoddy character of bis wife in a bright, 
glaring light In the fourth act, however, 
she evidently, according to the dialogue, 
must have repented and sent back the boodle, 
only extracting a small sum, we learn, with 
which to pay her debts. 

Tfte title "What Would You Do?" refers 
to the final disposition of the HI gotten cur- 
rency. Herbert solves this, after much dis- 
cussion, by building a Some for cripples, 
which was a rather peculiar expedient used 
by tho author, to end tho play. 

Louise Drew, as tbe mercenary wife's sis- 
ter, was simply mis-cast. A slng-songy 
method of reading lines, and an utter lack 
of any conception of tbe role, marred ker 

John L. Arthur offered an acceptable "bit," 
as a butler. MUton Sills, as the foolish 
young husband, was entirely too stagy and 
lacking In the technique necessary to make 
the rather difficult part convincing. 

Gladys Wynne, who was supposed to be 
his Bister In the play, spoke with a marked 
cockney accent, while Mr. Sills articulated 
New Yorkese, a rather jarring and Irritating 
inconsistency, which may have been caused 
by the necessity of engaging some one for 
the sister rolo hurriedly. 

Bessie Barrlscale was only fair at best as 
the wife, never at any tlmo seeming to have 
a proper conception of the character. 

A. Byron Beasley. barring an occasional 
tendency to grope for his lines, portrayed 
the role of tbe magazlno story writing fixer 
with a pleasant, breezy, light comedy method, 

Ritchie Ling, as tbe wicked man of money, 
who wanted to steal Herbert's wife right 
under his nose, gave a performance good 
only in spots. He teemea to lack force In 
tbe big scene. Possibly It may have been 
the lines. 

•flattie. Russell was very good Indeed, as 
the money-mad, extravagant, burgcols mother 
of the wife. Hers was a delightfully correct 

Karl Bitter, as a chauffeur, and Alice Car- 
rlngton, as a maid, played two minor roles 

Robert MacKay, as the crooked stock 
broker, who was misled into buying and 
selling stock for Hostage and his friend, 
Jenkins, was fair In a poorly written part 

The const ruction of the play throughout 
Is loose, and tbe production end, which called 
for three scenes, very commonplace, shabby 
nod distinctly not up to the Broadway stand- 

The author might be accused of having 
paralleled the story of 'Wine Feathers" but 
for the fact that "What Would You Dor' 
was very evidently written long before the 
above mentioned domestic problem piny. 
Possibly a process of revision might help the 
slow moving story, but It looks hopeless. 


Jardln de Danae (iRd. B. Pldgeon, 
mgr.)— The advent of Lent does not appear 
to hags lessened the dancing vogue of this 
popular place, where a long list of enter- 
tainers remains practically the same. Mons.

popularity here. Is a return feature this 
week, and has as one of bis dancing partners 
a prominent society girl from Chicago, who 
is making ber first professional appearances.

teered to give them all a Christian burial. 
A cemetery plot was purchased, and tho in- 
terment of the sixteen took place. No. 10

•The Wanhtntiton (D. O.) Timet, of Feb.

Minnie Burke tripping gayly down tfao Capi- 
tol stops on her toes. Miss Burke won a 
bet by doing the Btunt, which attracted cou- 
aldorable attention among tho senators. 

We quote The Timet : "She performed la 
the historic spot where presidents hnTo taken 
the oath of office since tho Capitol was 
erected. iBut she made a new bit of Jlstory 
for tho spot. Records show that an automo- 
bile once tried to climb op tho flight. Carl 
Browne succeeded In making a speech there

the Capitol stoutly maintain that never be- 
fore has a toe dancer performed ttiore, and 
look duly shocked Wuea. asked such a ques- 

"And that cosrumo 1 Tho lock was as brief

pression on those who saw tlm performance." 


An •unprecedented Injunction has been 

granted to Aaron Hoffman, dramatic writer, 
y Judge Ba/. in tho V. 8. District Court 
lor the Northern District of Now York, on 
Feb. 13, 1014, in an Injunction brought by 
Hoffman against Bam Lo Traunlck, a Ger- 
man comedian, using tho stage name "Sena- 
tor Murphy," and against Jean Bedtnl, a

ducing a play entitled 'vTho Mlsohlof Mak- 
ers," nnd a feature of tho performances was 
a topical monologuo recited by "Senator

the anion that the Murphy monologue con- 
sisted of a, collection of gags culled from 
thirteen copyrighted monologues, written hy 
Aaron Hoffman, undor the title "Tho Ger- 
man Senator" and "Tho German Politician." 

Hoffman's monologues wcro used by tho 
Into Cliff Gordon, 'Who, nt tho tlmo <if his

can stage, and was receiving $500 a week for

lngs sarcasms, roalaprops and witticism)) 
written for hlin by Hoffman. Trrrbtigli Cliff 
Gordon, "Senator Murphy" (In Trounik) 
became acquainted wlni <Hoffinan'B mono- 
logues. He attended repeated recitals given 
by Gordon, and from memory ho took down 
tho best passages, from which ho mndo up a 
composlto reproduction of Hoffninn's -ma- 
terial, This composite result wait resetted by 
him Id Iledlnl'H show. 

In oho final decree, which has lust been 
rendered by Judge Hay, It Is •adjmigcii that 
tbeso monologues are tho original crcntlons 
of Aaron Hoffman, and that Hoffman Iras 
valid copyright in them. 

The composlto anonologuo onado up by Lo 
Traunlk Is declared to do an unlancful repro- 
duction, and ho and Hedlnl nro adjudged 
guilty of Infringement of Hoffman's copy- 

An injunction Is granted porpetually ro- 
etralnlng the reproduction, recltnl or use of 
Hoffman's monologues, or of any part there- 
of, or of any abridgement, compilation, or- 
ruDgement, Imitation or version of said 

-Hoffman is awarded $1,000 damages nnd 
$005.78 coals. 

This Is the first known enso whore a comic 
monologue has been protected by tlm courts, 
and wbeie both tho actor and manager of the

"Schmidt's Widows" Is the burlesque, with 
the following cast: 

Kudolph Schmidt Gus Fay 

John James Jones Eugene Jergo 

Terrence McNab Billy Kelly 

Bud Tliomas Hodgeman 

Betty, the shop girl Edyth Hamilton 

Mrs. Flossie Schmidt Ada Lum 

Mrs. Susie Schmidt Ifie Williams 

Mrs. Beauty Wright NelUc Florede 

Models and Shop dirts — Morgan Sisters, 
Cattell Bisters, La Vann, Cushman, Mayers, 
Larmon, Griffin, Marlon, Kelly, Wilson. Hel- 
dclle, rierce, Harrington, Chapman, Wilson, 
Wall, May, waldron, lhirnham, Glenn, Stokes. 

The plot Is very meagre, but It gives Qus 
Fay a chance to be funny as the fat German 
tailor, and to disguise himself for a few 
moments with a beard as a doctor. 

Eugene Jerge appears to excellent advan- 
tage as the straight; Billy Kelly plays a 
perfunctory Irishman. 

Edyth Hamilton was a gingery soubrette 
ehop girl ; Ada Lum was one of the wldo.vs ; 
Jlae Williams Is a buxom and comely singer. 

Nellie iFloredc eaxig well as the prima 
donna, and appeared well In a number of at- 
tractive gowns. 

The numbers In tho first act were "Regi- 
ment Bond," by Mr. Jerge ; "Girl from Arl- 
sons," by Miss Florede; "Rudolph Schmidt," 
by Mr. Fay : "Get Out and Oet Under," put 
over In lively manner by Miss Hamilton and 
(he active chorus, to several encores; "Tho 
Cat Duo," wlUi ''Nobody Lovs Me-Ow," fea- 
tured by Mr. Fay and Miss Hamilton, with 
several chorus girls selected to do the 
chorus; "Rosclanu," well sung by Miss Will- 
lams end Mr, Jerge, with the girls In showy 
rose costume ; a singing; ana talking sex- 
tette, and "Picnic Day," with the ladles' 
band, American flag, etc., to a lively finish. 
Ike Wall made a big hit playing the detec- 
tive in the bomb skit,* although not billed on 
the program. 

The olio had Jergo and Hamilton In their 
cntchy act, singing 'iComo and Kiss Your 
Llttlo Baby ;" "Kentucky Eyes," by Mr. 
Jerge, with a fine dance by Miss Hamilton, I 
ana a good double finish. The Interna- 1 
tlonnl Musical Maids played a brass quar- 1 
tette, "The Horary" solo, on tbo French horn, | 
accompanied by tho chime, was a big bit, 
and tho brass selections, by six, In which 
the talky eyed drummer girl stood out, served 
as encore getter, 

Nellie Florcdo opened with "Mother Ma- 
chrce," then rang "Your Loving Daughter 
Handy," and finished with her trump ace, 
"My Hero," striking tbo Wgti notes trae as 

Tho second act Is a cabaret scene, the 
opening song, Introducing four KusKlnn 
dancers and four Americans. "Gambling 
Man" was' Bung by Miss Wlllnmn; "This Is 
the Life." served Miss Hamilton as another 
winner. Qua Fay did "Fall Blver Lino" 
with the choruB, frequently Interrupted by 
the Circe man bond, with Ike Wall non- 
chalcntly playing the bass drum ; Miss Hamil- 
ton, In a natty black dancing suit, led tho 
eight buck and wing hoofers. In white. For 
tho finale, Nellie Florede. In UpJhtB, sang 
"The ncart of Maryland," with tho girls in 
full tights doing march movements. 

Qus Fay enjoyed that part of tho show 
from a scat In tho aisle. A slRsy" scene be- 
tween Mr. Jerge and Mr. Fay was amusing. 
A table scene alii not do so much. Tbo band 
worked on full tlmo at tho drop of the cur- 

Tho staff: Bob Simons, manager; William 
Vail, agent; Eugene Jerge. stage manager; 
Melville Browne, musical dlroctor ; Qus F«y, 
dance producer; Joe Mullen carpenter; Will- 
iam Hauford, electrician ; Iko Wall, property 
manager; Allco Wilson, wardrobo mistress. 


Another gun In tho campaign against Sun- 
flny shows was tired this week, when J. 
Herbert Mack, president of tho Columbia 
Amusement Co. and manager of tho Columbia. 
Now York, was bnnded a summons March 2, 
to appear In court, on a charge of violating 
tho Sunday Law. The "concert" at ttio Co- 
lumbia, on March 1, included an acrobatic 
act, a big girl act. in tights, etc., and other 
acts, tho presentation of which could bo con- 
strued to im a violation of tbo statutes. Tho 
outcome, will be wutched with great In- 
terest by local managers, who bnvo thus fur 
enjoyed tho extremely liberal Interpretation

Maurice Snmnels and CompanyJn "A 
Day on Ellis Island." 

Fulton, HrooklvN, Matinbh. Mabcti 2. 

Owing to the big storm Samuels' scenery did 
not arrive In time for the Monday nnttlnee, so 
the act used on Interior set furnished by tho 
house, and wag a big bit on their re-appearance 

The story tells of an Italian woman and a boy 
arriving In tills country, and owing to tbo woman 
not having tho necessary dollars required by all 
emigrants, she Is about to bo deported, when her 
sweetheart arrives at Ellis Island, showing docu- 
ments providing that he marries her within thirty 
ilnyn after tho death of an uncle he is to rccelvo 
$r,o,0oo, and the "Inspectors" agree to tho wishes 
of both and the ceremony. 

Good business remains abundantly throughout 
tbe sketch. Mnurleo Samuels Is a wonderful im- 
personator of tbe Italian character, and be never 
once gets away from his study. Toe Inspector, a 
gruff sore of a part, Is well taken care of, as welt 
as the Irish officer, who la Indeed made successful 
by a man who alto "doubles" In tbe prleit part 
with cuuully good results. 

Mr. Samuels la excellent as tho Immigrant, and 
tbo boy is a clever Juvenile performer. Ills violin 
specialty, using "I Miss You Most of All," "Got 
Out and Oct under" and "International Rag," 
went big, He is a musician of merit. Samuels 
worked up One comedy during Its entirety. 

It Is worthy of being classed "a laugh a minute 
comedy," as It Is extraordinarily bright and 
hugely funny. A decided hit over the brllge 
Monday afternoon, taking four curiam, calls. 
Twenty-seven minutes, full stage. fits'.

Alleen Stanley. 
Biotobo, Buookltn, Hattnbb, Maich I. 

Making her entrance wearing a pretty evening 
gown of pink over white, with a handsome white 
silk coat and white lace cap, for "This Is tbe 
Life," Mum Stanley won her audience at this 
house at once. "1 Do" followed, without coat, 
and went big. "That Isn't What He Said" was 
another good one, Then Miss Stanley, with the 
assistance of a chair, put over a parody on "Get 
Out and Get Under," alternately la JewlBh and 
Irish dialect, and It was a real big bit for her. 
For an encore this clever young lady ottered "Sal- 
vation Nell," In wblcb alio worked up s lot of 
good business, and scored a great success. 

Mils Stanley Is a tall, shapely, and attractive 
young lady who lias the dexterity of knowing 
how to put a number over. Twelve minutes. In 
one. Bit. 


Dresser, Wallace and Company, la 
"In WatsonvlIIe." 

Pbootob'b 120th Stbbxt, Feu. 27. 

Tho plot of this comedy sketch deals with ths 
desires of one Percy Hastings, a rural dude, to 
eecuro a "city gal" for a wife, so he puts a 
matrimonial advertisement In a New York 
paper, and Helen Hargrave Brown applies and Is 
advanced raldroad fare. 

Tho action passes la Robert Stevens' law office 
In Wotsonvllle, a small country town, and hers 
Percy discloses his plan to tbo lawyer. In short, 
Helen arrives, falls immediately In love wltb the 
lawyer, and Percy Is the goat. 

The Idea Is weak and, although Frederick Wal- 
lace and Edward Dresser do west Is poasiblo la 
Iho ruba and lawyer roles, respectively, Ibey 
cannot hope for better than threc-a-day. Mary 
Walk played Helen. Thirteen minutes. Toil.

Fern* One looking fellows doing a grout singing

Now," by one member, was very good. A medley 
of popular numbers follows by all four Is a go. 
"Would You Tuko Mo Buck Again T" by oue iron, 
goes over flue. They end with "Dixieland" and) 
"Obcvunenke Bay." 

The High Life "4" are as clever a quartet as 

any In vaudeville to-dny. They all have One 

voices, and know how to put numbers over, and 

best of nil Ibey bamioiilrc. The boys weur neat

Dan Hn rite's Womler Glrla. 
- Psocron's 125th STBBsr, Feb. 27. 

Be-appesrlng locally with the same running of 
the act as when It wss first reviewed In 1010, 
but featuring Jack Dempaey, a comedian and soft 
shoe dancer. Baa Burke's girls found a warm 
spot with the attendance on above date. 

Dcmneey works with an air of confidence, with 
a revival of past performances, but his person- 
ality makes It get by strongly. The numbers of 
the girls need rearranging. They are a lively 
half dozen pretty girls, and with newer songs and 
costumes would overcome that handicap. The 
numbers with the bells concealed in a fence be- 
fore the lake drop, ts retained and the girls play- 
ing the "bells" with their feet while lying on 
their backs, helps out nicely. The baseball bit 
could bo worked up much stronger, thoush an- 
other might substitute it with better results. 
Nineteen minutes, full stage. Toi.

Palace, Mondai Evenino, March 2. 

Presenting a condensed version of "Marlunn," 
Berths Kallch made her uret appearance at this 
hoaso Monday, March 2, and was little short 
of a sensation. Her selection of a sketch for bcr 
Initial performance bare lias bten well choFen. 
Her company Is good and lend her excellent sup- 
port. In tho character of Mnrlana, a reveu^eful 
wife. Miss K nil ell has seldom been seen to 
greater advantage. Her acting was at times vesy 
forceful, ond showed oft her talent to perfection. 

Chief among her enpport is Frank Andrews ond 

John ElaTrlngton, both men acting their character* 

In a convincing manner. Tbo act runs stiout 

thirty minutes, on full stage. Jack.

Mnk-'ng a new tram In vaudeville thla clever 
pair made their first New York anpes ranee to- 
gether and presented one of tho roost entertaining 
acts of this kind ever given In this bouse. Songs 
sad dancing form the foundation of their per- 
formance, and as both have been commented 
upon In these columns many times, It only re- 
mains to be said that both duplicated tbe success 
that has always attended tbclr efforts In this 
city. A new rong. Introduced by Mr. White, en- 
titled "Push It Along," sounds like one of Iboas 
quick lire kind, and went over with a bang. The 
act reus about eighteen minutes. Jack.

The men ore a clever duo la their special line, 
and the woman. In a maid part, knte-Iengtb

very well. The act could have a better idea 
written around It, as It stands the reason for

every public place having one or more pianos, 
must have a theatrical license costing $600. 
This would not only apply to the cafes, but 
means that songs can not be demonstrated 
in moving picture bouses, department stores

Ouicaoo, Moreh 3. 
Two inlts aggregating 100,000 for alleged dum- 
eges, were died ln the Federal Court here today, 
by Ed. L. Drew, of Bailey A Drew, owners at 
"The Traffic," the much discussed play that litis 
Just completed a four months' run ln Chicago, 
and by Colonel Bill Thompson, leasee and mana- 
ger of the Waukegin Opera House, against Mayor 
Bedlnger, the Aldermen, and the Olty of Wnu- 
kegan. The snlt grows out of Mayor Bedlnger a 
stopping of "Tbe Traffic" from playing In that 
city, and the complainants, each of whom aska 
for $26,000 damages, aaaert that tbe mayor, who 
never saw the play, described it to tbe Oouncll 
In a manner, false, misleading, and defamatory 
to the property and to those interested ln pre- 
senting tho drama. Several small town officials 
have already Interfered with "Tbe Traffic," and 
tbe objectors have In every case been individual' 
who linvc never witnessed too performance. "I'ctty 

Solltles, local fends, and hysterical reform fad- 
lata," says Manager Drew, "bare In each case 
given as trouble. Hereafter we will fight thla 
kind of Injustice ln tbe Federal Courts. Neve.- 
again will we submit to bave our property and 
Ita owners slandered and Injured by false reports 
and provincial bigotry. 'The Traffic' has had no 
opposition In the larger cities towns towns. Three 
companies are now en tout- In this play."

By far the most notable event In Washington, 
D, 0., of tho present aeason took place at Poll > 
Popular Theatre week of Feb. S3, with the 
premiere of "The Governor's Boss," by ea-oens- 
tor James 8. Barcus. The Poll management cer- 
tainly deserves credit for having presented a 
brand new play by an unknown author, gmki 
business ruled all week, and the performances 
were attended by moBt every notable politician 
in Washington, tho most notable, of course, oc- 
log President Wilson. The play la being nego- 
tiated for by several well known New York man- 
agers, and will be produced ln New Terk In ths

things up Uke ancient Qeorgle mutilated the 
now extinct "cherry" thing. It's no lie. 
Heck the Washington Heighten just salamed 
to their melodies like little George did in 
the woodshed trick, and now the trio has 
been chosen as the added attraction of the 
Broadway Girls, at Hurtlg & Seamon'a The- 
atre next week. 

More Doctor Bills. 

Carrie Lille, "the personality lass," has 
been adding more wealth to a certain Bronx 
physician's bank roll. She was taken HI and 
forced to cancel route and return for another

But she's comln' around slowly now under 
the careful eye of her "mommer." 
Twenty-five Years Old. 

Proctor's Twenty-third Street Theatre will 
celebrate "her" twenty-fifth birthday on 
Thursday, March 5, and the way Manager

According to the "all figured out for you" 
seals of salaries appearing in l'at Casey's

Them Were Happy Days. 

'Seeing Bert Roscnquest handling the as- 
sistant managerial reins down at the Four- 
teenth Street Theatre reminds me of when 
I went to skule with blm. Wo have both 
outgrown the lumps wo originated on one 
cuother's beds with Prof. Maxwell's Hlates, 
at least he has, for Bert is good to look 
upon, wile I — ah, don't laff, boys, the folks 
wui all out on the buty thing wen 1 blew In. 
But to git bak to Fourteenth Street. Bert 
teams to bo satisfied with his surrondlngs,

the ballards, and, by the way, Jack is set- 
ting thin. And then there's Harry Shea 
•tuning the bouse with pretty good shows 
•vrte few days without enybodle's help hut 
Harry Shea. 

Martin Shcan and Jimmy Flattery are

Kenton, shelling out the stubs as treasurer ; 
Daniel Green, chief ushering; Louis Conroy 
and Daniel Rice, chief and assistant plcktur

ium In a pinch, are going to be featured In. 
a big girl act, which Is to be put nut by Jack 
Goldberg, of the Marcus Loew forces. 
' Lillian for London. 

Caught LUUan (Russell) Bradley, the 
Hondo beauty, gathering in dates at the U. 
B. O. headquarters one afternoon last week. 
Lillian's flno soprano voice made her one of 
the favorites of Jurdin de Danso during her 
engagement there, besides carrying ber to 
more recent triumphs In vaudeville. She has 
seen booked by M. S. Bentbam for extensive 
European engagements, and will hi herself 
Londonwards via the Olympiv on May 10

In the meantime she would be a welcome 
song feature of local variety bills, lust as 
she was on the benefit bill for the Hebrew 
Inlant Asylum at Uio Casino last Sunday 

Burke's Girls In Town. 

Caught Dan Burke's Wonder Girls up In 
Harlem last week. Jack Dempeey, a hickory 
■ut comedian is featured in the present con- 
glomeration of song and frolic, and though 
there Is still a Holler girlie In the "girl" end 
•f it all, as when first seen here In 1010, 
alie is Dagmer Moller. The other live girlies 
surrounding Dempsey are: Ethel Stuart.

Grayco Connell, formerly Of Malson

Innls' Eyes Dad. 

Wondered why Maude Ryan was unaccom- 
panied by "hub on Broadway ono afternoon 
last week, until I was pumped with the 
spoonful of unsatisfactory knowledge that 
"hub's'' eyes were in bad shape ana a rest 
was compulsory. 

Freddie's Crew' In Dancer. 

Freddie Becque, the coming impresario of 
the "movies," who runs feature picture shows 
In New City and Congers, N. Y., once each 
week, and his crew of Bob Hopper and Geo. 
Martllng camo near a catastrophe on tho 
way from the latter place night of Feb. 20, 
when their sleigh did a brodlc, and to or- 
ganization and feature picture, "Jerry's 
Mother-in-Law," were stuck Into the white 
etuff up to their Belmonts. 

They managed to lose no time scrambling 
to good breathing apace, and after lushing a 
telegram to Madeline, In Bay Ridge, that ho 
was still healthy and unharmed, Freddie and 
his assistants gilded on. He says bis illus- 
trated songs, sung by Columbia records, are 
setting 'cm up straight in New City and 

Last Week at the Fifth Avenue, 

Tho Meredith Sisters were on too early 
(No. 3) on the Fifth Avenue bill last week, 
but keeping tabs on the show Pearls ana 
Clara were ono of the pleasures of the en- 
tire entertainment. They made five classy 
changes, and besides continuing the "Hia- 
watha' number and special Indian set they 
used "Mandalny," "I've Never Been Kissed 
Before," "Hello, Wintertime," and a special 
Dutch number, all well rendered. They still 
have that taste for good clothes. 

Ted Lorraine and Hattle Burks sang and 
danced beautifully to a good reception. Joe 
Howard and charming Mabel McCane's mix- 
ture of sketch and song, and Miss McCane'S 
display of wonderful gowns, found them 
guilty of causing another small rumpus when 
They left 

I eat crullers like Vlollnsky Angers out 
that "Apache" Intermezzo on the piano (ask 
any one of "the girls" In Child's). Nuf sed. 
When Ward Johnstone tossed that half dol- 
lar over tho footlights for that "cafe pianist" 
finish of Vl's last Wednesday night I nearly 
dove out of as upstairs box. Vlollnsky got 
all that as coming and a few more bows 
that were. due. 

Gormloy and Caffery aro ono of tho best 
acrobatic pairs In their line, and were a great 
opener for the show. Tho black face Brown 
Brothers wcro good and funny when they 
danced on tho skates. "The I'lnno Movori" 
Is as well known as Edmond Hayes Is him- 
self, and Just as funny now as he and Tom 
Snyder always mado It In their respective 
roles, assisted cleverly by Marie Jansen. 
Herberts dogs nre up In the lead as an en- 
tertaining canine act, with that little loon- 
tho-loop terrier putting the fun to the beauty 
of the act. A good show, but hardly appre- 
ciated by the peculiar audience of Ola par- 
ticular evening. 

HarlenVa Cabarcters. 

Hurry your entry In for Tim Clipper's 
Bong writers' Contest and that tin cap, 
boys, to be held at the theatrical and novelty

'm fortunate, so have your monocle on or I 
won't give you a tumble.) 

Business at the Alamo, on One Hundred) 
and Twcnty-Qfth Street, continues to boom 
along scrumptously, with Jo-Jo and Delancy 
end Hattle Harlowe as regular songsters, 
and Irving Daah casing out "those melodies.' 

Henrietta Hanson was featuring "Camp 
Meotln' Band" and "Let By-gonea Be By- 
gones," besides doing a bit at the piano, up 
at Nlemeycra', nrhflo Bstella Sanson was 
romping through with "Kiss Me, I've Never 
Been Kissed Before," "You've Got Your 
Mother's Big* Bine aye*." "Mandalny" and 
too "'Rover" numbers In Mg fashion. Busi- 
ness IS BO-BO, 

'Business at the College Inn appears to be 
most satisfactory. At least that's tho Im- 
pression the surroundings made on my 
bruised forehead last Thursday evening, Peb. 
20, when wo dropped In for a peek and 

Paul Cunningham had Just finished silvery 
voicing "I'm Crying Just for You" and "Dan- 
cing Around," and both numbers went smash- 
ing well. And who were slanted at a table

(Wonder what they did with that chicken 
they won at the Inn, en route for Bridge- 

Corbett Shepherd and Donovan used 
"Rubens Tango HuikbV Bee" end "Dandna 
Around" to their usual big reception, ana 
Elmer Fleming, chick and peppery, eased 
over '^Chattanooga" in good form, while 
Dave Foi romped through two corking good 
parodies on "Why Do You Hang Around" 
and "Got Out tuid Get Under." 

Mery Bruce, a pretty young singer, with 
abundance of soprano voice, was then an- 
nounced as a special surprise, and the way 
eho warbled "Isle D'Amour" was worth all 
tbe way It was received. Joe Goodwin, of 
Leo Feist's shop, was In, but didn't uso 
"Ragtime Dream 7 ' or "You Broke My Heart

with merchants and manufacturers awl moke 
a tour of the State under the aupplees of 
the Hoard of Health, In a big campaign for 
pure food. In addition to nn exhibit consist- 
ing of food, good, and bad properly or im- 
properly bandied, there will V shown sani- 
tary device* for food preparation la shops 
and In the home, The nig and vital feature 
of tbe campaign will be moving picture films 
showing graphically perils of the fly pest, 
proper and Improper methods of handling 
mlBc and other food products, the necessity 
(or clean, wholesome food supply, especially 
as a means toward safeguarding the health 
of children. Tho practicability of utilizing 
moving pictures in showing all these details 
Diss been amply demonstrated. Besides, it 
odds a new nest of Interest to tbe great new 
campaign for safeguarding public health. 
The industrial and educational value of mov- 
ing picture} is beginning more than ever bo- 
fore to be realized and applied for big re- 
sults in bettering the conditions of life. 

I/ondon is experiencing a moving picture 
revival of Scllg's great historical three reel 

film, "The Coming of Columbus." This big 
feature recently made A long tour through 

Mabel Tamapkmio, the heroine of Scllg's 
"('Indartlla,'' and her husband, Tom Carrl- 
gun, associated with many Hellg picture 
plnys, are both playing In Chicago now. 
Miss Taliaferro is playing with her sister, 
I'M I th at the Towers, in the satirical com- 
edy, "Young Wisdom;" while Mr. Carrlgau 
Is playing with Edith Wynne Matt bison, In 
"The Deadlock," at tho Howard. Both wero 
visitors last week at the Bellg studios. 

John J. McGbaw, the famous boseb.ill 
player, has been casting aspersions on tho 
llrltlsh army during tho tour of his "nine" 
abroad, and our revered Admiral Dewey has 
Iieen saying tome disagreeable things nbout 
I he German navy, so that wo are liable to 
pile up eorac international complications as 
the result of too much talking. . Why can't 
our heroes be rltlccnt, or If they really want 
to bo safe ; In other words, wordproof, let 
them get Into the silent drama. There Is a 
good picture, engagement open either for Mc- 
Cimw or Admiral Dewey 1 

Tim vogue of "The Adventures of Kath- 
lyn" has become so much of a habit with the 
patrons of tho merles that they cull 
lor it as they do for books at the public 
library. Tho usual experience has been that 
a picture onco given, passes along tbe lino 
until it roaches tho limit of Its activity 
described by the General Wlro Company. In 
the rase . of "Kabhiyn" however, theatres 
lime ttccn repeating roe various releases over 
and over. In conformity with request. A 
number of theatres are this week announcing 
they will bo giving tho drat and second Issues 
of tie Bcrlcs. This sneaks well for the per- 
petual popularity Of the greatest lnnovntlon 
as a business maker for picture exhibitors.

vise that tbe correct title Is "For Napoleon 
and France," and the subject will be ready 
for exhibition under that title next month. 

Archbishop HrAui.m no, of Quincy, 111., 
attended a performance of "Quo VadlsSV at 
that city recently. The archbishop informed 
the Kleine representative that it was tbe 
first time in twenty years that he bad been 
Inside of a theatre. ''I knew nothing of mo- 
tion pictures and their possible Influence 
on the community until I had seen "Quo 
Vndls?" said the archbishop. "As this is 
the first time I have l»een Inside a theatre In 
twenty years I could not be expected to 
know much of the new art. I was attracted 
in this case by tbe religious nature of the 
picture and by what I bad been reading of 
censorship boards, etc. Of course, I have 
seen motion pictures before at social afTalrs 
held by churches in my diocese." 

Quito a gathering of local newspaper men. 
Including representatives from the many Chi- 
cago newspapers that are now conducting 
motion picture departments and members of 
the trado press, saw George Klelne's "For 
Napoleon and Franco" at a private exhibition 
last Saturday. They were loud In their 
praise of the beautiful eight part Clnes 

J. D, BtjTLFB, the famous Pacific Coast 
teacher and orator, used George Rlelne'j 
"The Last Days of Pompeii" as a subject lor 
a lecture before a convention of professors 
and teachers at Olympta, Wash., fast week. 
Butler dwelt at grcnt length upon the edu- 
cational features of "Pompeii," and dis- 
cussed the splendid powers of the subject in 
eradicating previous mental pictures of tbe 
stricken city and supplanting in their placo 
I ho producer's own ideas of the civilization 
of the times and the physical appearances of 
streets, buildings, costumes, etc. It was 
from this angle, declared the lecturer, that 
the plcturo reached Its highest usefulness 
rather than from tho standpoint of story or

Long after wo have becomo ancestors, and 
our children's children have reaped the 
heritage of parentage the moving picture 
will represent tho blotter of life — the file in 
which is laid away the lives wo lived — from 
whose archives one can pluck "canned his- 
tory." Moving pictures mean that much to 
the world, if not more. 

Can you for a moment Imagine yourself a 
citizen of this country In the year ROOO, 
perusing history and reading the fives of the 



Jk LL exhibitors aspire to reach the goal of suc- 
**■ cess, but often overlook the greatest asset of 
a Photo-Play Theatre. 

A profitable business must be built up on sta- 
bility, and Motion Picture profits can only be 
assured through the use of the best films and 

perfect pictures for over 70 per cent of the en- .

In first offering his great historical pic- 
tures of the "Indian Ware for Civilization" 
for public approval, Colonel Cody, "Buffalo 
Bill," and his associates were honored by a 
I'j'i-i-lul invitation to present them before the 
members of the Government Home Club at 
.Washington, D.\ C, on Thursday evening, 
l'"eb. 26. 

Tho distinguished scout said: "My object 
and desire has been to preserve history by 
the aid of the camera with us many of the 
living participants In the closing Indian 
wars of North America as could bo procured. 
It Is something that .has never been done 
before ; that Is, to preserve our old wars for 
future generations by living or moving pic- 

"I first broached this subject to Secretary 
of War Llndley M. Garrison and Bccrctnry 
of the Interior Franklin K. Lane, and they 
epproved of taking these remarkable pc- 
tures, provided they could be made historic- 
aly correct, and would tell tho story of the 
old Indian wars and the progress of the In- 
dian from the days of savagery up to the 
present time. Secretary Garrison gave me 

Jiermtsslon to use the United Btntcs troops 
or this expedition, and Secretary Lane au- 
thorised tho mobilization of the Indians 
necessary for the purpose. 

"Then I looked around and found na runny 
of the old rime arm; officers as ore now 
living, who had actually participated In thoso 
campaigns and events that occurred twenty- 
live to forty years ago, and I finally succeeded 
to trotting them to agreo to appear In repro- 
duolug these battles with the aid of the 
modern camera, true to life and history. My 
efforts were rewarded In securing such men 
as General Nelson A. Miles, General Jesse M. 
Lee, General Frank 1). Baldwin, General 
Morton P. Mnus, General Charles KlDg and 
Colonel H. G. Sickles, now colonel of the 
'Xwelf th U. S. Cavalry. These men, of course, 
were then younger, and with less rank than 
they have nt the present. 

"Wo then proceeded to tho Pine Bldge 
Agency, In South Dakota, where the last 
Indian battles were fought end there took 
the pictures of the campaign of 1800 and 
1801, known as the Ghost Dance or Messina 
Crase War, wiloh Included tho capturo of 
Chief Big Foot and Ids followers, Dec. 28; 
the Battle of Wounded Knee Dec. 2D, under 
command of General James Win, Forsyth, 
with the Seventh Cavalry ; and the Battle 
of the Mission Dec. 80, 1800, where General 
Guy V. Henry went to tho relief of the 
Seventh Cavalry. Wo also took other battles, 
namely: "The Battle of Summit Springs," 
■wCiich was fought on June 11, 1800, on the 
Eastern borders of Colorado, under command 
of General Eugene A. Carr, and the battle 
' known as Warbonnct Creek, fought on July 
17, 1876, under command of General Wesley 
Merritt General Charles King was at that 
time tho Adjutant of tho .Fifoa Cavalry, and 
It was that organization which fought tho 
Indians at the battle of Warbonnct Creek. 

"We were six or seven weeks taking the 
pictures of these different battles. The pic- 
tures are made much more interesting and 
valuable because of the faot that they can- 
not be again reproduced, as the same men, 
not only the army officers, but a great many 
of tho old time Indians who originally par- 
ticipated In these engagements, are growing 
too old to ever again appear In a reproduc- 
tion of these scenes and Incidents. Several 
of the original participants have died since 
these reproductions were staged a few months 
ago. , Consequently tho pictures will be as 
valuable a hundred years from now for tho 
entertainment and enlightenment of future 
generations as they ore to-day. And It was 
only by hhe aid or tho perfected camera that 
these scenes could be taken and perpetuated 
for future generations. 

"There will be a sot of these reels, cover- 
ing over seven miles of dims, placed In the 
archive* of the War Department and also In 
the Interior Department, to be kept for fu- 
ture use and educational purposes.'

Charles MacLaace. "a good little dovll." 
and a little friend of all the worM, upon fall 
mothers death 1b sent to his uncle, Lord 
Collnton, to he reared as will boflt his future 
rank. Lord Collnton' %os recently lost his 
only son, and with ids memories and his 
broken heart, unable to bear the tight of 
children, places Charles in tho care of a 
distant and heartless aunt, Mrs. MacMlche. 
Charles loves the fairies with all tbo nrdor 
of his poetic soul, and In spite of Jls rags 
and misery the ethereal creatures bring him 
solace; while Mrs. MocMlrhe. with ber sor- 
did soul and Iron heart, to whom the fairies 
ere fiends, llws In pathetic terror of their 
power. Charles meets and loves Juliet, into 
whose eyes God forgot to put the light, and 
the fairies, who only come when tho heart Is 
so full that It cannot speak, manifest them- 
selves to too happy young lovers In a my- 
riad ways. Upon the death of Lord Colln- 
ton, Charles becomes heir to bis title nnd 
fortune, and takes a pitiful and tender fare- 
well of Juliet, promising to Toturrt w'jon he 
is old enough to make her bis Lady Collnton. 

With the lapse of years and' the possession 
of power Charles forgets the fairies and 
Juliet, and becomes a snobl Jullct'B heart 
calls to blm through tho distance and the 
darkness, but her prayer Is In vain. Mean- 
lime, Love and Sympathy have entered the 
heart of Mrs. MacMlche. and -fn Charles' ab- 
sence she realizes that she loves him. Faith 
conquers fear, and her hate of the fairies Is 
dispelled. Through her longing for Charles 
she becomes seriously 111, and dispatches n 
servant to ask htm to como to her, I,ord 
Collnton spurns the plea, and later becomes 
engaged to the famous Lady Rosalind — "a 
very distinguished match I" Ills conscience, 
sjmbotizod In the form of the Little Chnrlcs 
of Long Ago, accuses Lord Collnton of his 
perfidy, and in contempt leaves his body. 
Mrs. Mac-MIehc's Illness becomes nggrnvatcd. 
and tho doctor informs Lord Collnton that 
unless she sees him she will die of a broken 
heart, and this .time he deigns to visit her. 
Ills old aunt and Juliet arc staggered by the 
rod transformation In him. As he is nbout 
to leave he house his Conscience confronts 
him and battles with his worse self for su- 
premacy. Ills soul .triumphs, and the spirit 
of (the Old Charles returns. lie denounces 
and renounces the snobs who accompanied 
liitn on his visit, nnd tells them with dra- 
matic simplicity that he has seen the light 
end has learned wisdom I 

There Is a tender reunion between himself 
and Juliet, and they live happy forever and 

One of the best Famous Players produc- 
tions Been in some time. Mary l'lckford 
plays with her usual charm and simplicity 
of manner, and the work of Ernest Truer is 
exceedingly artistic. There Is a world of en- 
tertainment in the film version of Belasco's 
fairy play, and It should become one of 
those perennial favorites around holiday time 
for years to come. Inasmuch aa It contains 
so much that will Interest the youngsters. 
Fine camera work and careful attention to 
detail in the matter of producing nod direct- 
ing Is noticed throughout.

previously under Belasco's direction in New 
York, and the great producer said that he 
considers her the most beautiful blonde In 
the world.

The kind of a Success that brings the public's dimes and nickels to the little window down in front— the kind 
of a success that makes people tell their friends about the Show they saw— the kind of a Success that sends 
your patrons away completely satisfied and makes them want to come back again day after day, week after 
week— that's the kind of a Success long-headed Exhibitors are looking for and that's the kind of a Success the 



has proved to be—only It has turned out to be FAR bigger THAN WE THOUGHT. This weekly news film, flashing on the screens each week 
the vital, throbbing events of the WORLD'S living DRAMA as they have never been flashed before, has become a giant success from the 
very first film. No such combination of the best trained newspaper men In the world, working hand in hand with a matchless producing com- 
pany, has ever before been known. No staging, no make-believe, no "play-acting"— Just the ACTUAL drama OF LIFE with its heroes, uncon- 
scious of their audience, snapped In the great crises of the world's events, and their every look, every gesture, every movement brought from 
the uttermost ends of the earth and flashed upon your theatre screen. 

The greatest advertising you can do. is to give your patrons the kind of pictures that win bring them back again and again— that win make 
them wining to STAND IN line FOR HALF AN HOUR TO SEE YOUR SHOW. A hundred thousand d ollars s pent In advertising yo ur th eatre 

wouldn't do for you what good pictures will. Here's an opportunity for you to get a really GOOD picture EVERY WEEK— A REAL NEWS REEL— the 
kind that will build your patronage up and HOLD IT. Thousands of exhibitors have already Jumped at the chance to get the I ' EARST-SELIG

Tho Children's Welfare League, of Rox- 
bury, has made an investigation covering a 
iierlud of eleven weeks, of tho motion picture 
houses in that section, ami the il ml I huh 
would seem to Indicate that twenty per cent, 
of tho pictures aro unfit. All told, four hun- 
dred and fifty films were examined by niem- of the Reform Committee, and nlniMj- 
two were found to be objectionable lu tlirlr 
eyes, It. S. Thompson is the secretary of Mm 
League, and In a statement declared that 
the Welfare Association had tried not to bo 
prudish In their Judgment of the movies. 
With one bunch of reform advocates shout- 
ing loudly lu favor of pictures of tho "white 

slave" type, and another crowd noisily clam- 
oring to manage a business of which they 
apparently know so little,. coupled with the 
activities of tho various appointed and self- 
appointed censors throughout tho country, 
the motion picture industry should becomo 
quite high-brow, providing there Is anything 
left of It when tho muck-rakers got through.

pointed Mr. Oouquo special organiser for 
New York State, and expressed the hope 
that nlnoty per cent, of all the exhibitors 
visited would becomo mombcrs before Juno 
8, whon tho convention of the association 
till bo held at the Grand Central Palace, 
New York. Among several matters of Im- 
portance discussed was tho question of now 
by-laws and constitution. Representative 
Smith, of Schenectady, made a motion, sec- 
onded by Mr. HopfiueUter. of Buffalo, de- 
claring for tbe national censor board rather 
than State censorship. The next meeting

"Uow Mosha Came Back" and "Partners," 
two motion pictures In which it is claimed 
tbe Jewish and Irish races wore held up to 
ridicule, Tho Amusement Protective League 
has been formed In Chicago to combat ridicu- 
lous, harsh aal unjust censorship of pictures. 
We wish them luck. They will need It, anil 
they surely deserve It If half of the reports 
from the Windy City are true regarding aim 
conditions out there. 

Wai.tbr W. (Iiibunb, long Identified with 
the exchange business in New Mngland, as 
well as tbe owner of a circuit of motion pic- 
ture theatres down 'Blast, opened a feature 
111m sales tinslness, under the name of 
Greene's Feature Photoplays, Inc. His fea- 
tures will not be exclusively of one brand, as 
It Is (Mr. Greeno's Idea that he would rather 
pick the specifically excellent features In- 
ftead of contracting to take all of this or 
that manufacturer's output, which would 
sometimes coerce him In releasing Alms of 
lesser merit. Tho first release will be "Vam- 
pires of tbo .Night," In five roelo. As Is nat- 
ural to suppose, Mr. Greene has not put bla 
weakest foot forward in beginning his cam- 
paign, as this featuro Is Justifiably expected 
to Indicate tho quality of Groeno's releases. 

Onk of the situations In "The Reform Can- 
didate," a three reel Majestic, held n crowd 
In tho business section of Los Angeles In 
breathless suspense recently. Lamar John- 
stone plays the part of the reform candidate 
for mayor, unjustly accused of murder. 
Francella ltllllngton, as his wife, determines 
to free bun. and. disguised as a telegraph 
inossengor, obtftlus the evidenco which proves 
his Innocence. Her disguise Is detected by her 
husband's cnomlcs, and she Is locked In a 
room on tho tenth floor. In a large office 
building. Crawling out of the window on 
the tenth floor she gets a foothold In the 
ercvico of tho cornice of the building, hold- 
ing on for dear life. . However .she reached 
I'.er destination in safety. The girl's perilous 
feat was greeted with thundoroun cheers, 
but many a person heaved a sigh of relief 
when it was seen that she was out of danger. 
Lamar Johnson, the leading woman, waa 
white as a sheet. "The Stronger Hand," a 
two reel Majestic, by John Burkv, Is being 
produced under tho direction of Albert Hale, 
with Ernest Joy. Eugene Palletle and BlIHs 
West la the principal roles. The same com- 
pany produced the "Thief and the Book." a 
two reel play of the underworld, which was 
received with much favor.

had an "all star" week In vaudeville then 
we bad an "old timers" week, then ''Inter- 
national stars" week, and so on down the 
line, until we reached the so-called "song- 
writers convention." Cup contests were held 
by tho score, but at very few of these con- 

sole, and Is so pleased over the results al- 
ready shown that be can talk of little else. 
Standard Bearer Dick Jesa and President 
Milt Schmidt are saying little these days, 
but one sees them all over, constantly 
"Plugging" among tho press and public. An- 
other whose great work Is aiding the suc- 
cess of the affair is Harold Jones. His 
work In tbe immediate vicinity of the hall 
has raised the enthusiasm of tbe residents 
to a high pitch, and all are now eagerly 
awaiting the starting bell.

Isn't anyone who can truthfully say that ho

going to Journey to Burland Caclno, Pros- 
pect and Weatohester Avenues, Bronx, next 
Tuesday evening, March 10, and gaze at tbo 
greatest event ever held In tho world of 
theatricals, either In the past or present. 
All Writers Expect to Win. 

As before some Important contest both 
sides ere confident of carrying off the honors, 
so Is it with the writers entered In this con- 
test. Bach and every one who ban signified 
his Intention of making a supreme effort to 
beat the rest is confident that ho will be re- 
turned tho winner of the cup and the cham- 
pionship of America. With tho great amount 
of confidence emitted by each entry It Is a 
foregone conclusion that Napoleon's great 
fight ait Waterloo will appear as a sham 
battle in comparison with the struggle that 
will be made for Tiin Clippeh Cup next Tues- 
day evening at the affair of tbe Dkk Jess 

Cup a Beautiful Trophy. 

The cnp which will be presented to tbe 
winner is perhaps tbe moat beautiful and 
artistic loving cup that has ever been given 
as a prize at a song contest. The cup waa 
(specially designed and engraved for Tub 
Ci.ii'1'eh by the Queen City Silver Company, 
of Cincinnati, O. No words nor camera ran 
describe tbe wonderful prize. The cup Is 
sixteen inches in height, gold lined, and has 
three French gray handles. It Is a tropby 
i well worth trying for, as with it goes tbo 
title of Champion of America and an amount 
of prestige to the winning bomb that could 
not be nought for ten thousand dollars. 
While talking of the cup we print for tho 
last time, and for those who have heretofore 
paid uo attention, tbo 

Boles Governing; Contest. 

The contest will start promptly at 10 p. 

Every contestant must be in tbo ball 
9.15 7. x. and should report to Jack F.<. 
wards, chairman of the contest committee, 
as soon as he or she enters tho ball. 

Every contestant must enter with a song 
that is not over six months old.

under any circumstances. 

Any aong writer using singing boosters or 
vandevUlo artists In the contest to loin in 
tbe chorus of his song will bo disqualified. 

Publishers can enter as many contestants 
as they care to, but each writer must sing 
his own song ; no two writers of the same 
firm can sing the aame aong. 

The contest will bo decided by originality, 
simplicity of melody and lyric, delivery, 
octlon and enunciation of the singer. 

No form of advertising will be permitted 
in the ball except that which appears in tho 
official program of the Dick Jess Association. 

Publishers will not be allowed to flood the 
hall with chorus slips of songs being used by 
the contestants, 
i For the benefit of those who have not their* 
own pianist, Melville Morris has been selected 
•6 the official pianist for the contest. 

Five solemn, silent men, who are promi- 
nent In tie theatrical world, with the writer 
as chairman and deciding member, will act 
as Judges of tho contest. Each man is known 
for his impartiality, sense of fairness, and 
for his known Judgement In rendering de- 
cisions that will meet with the approval 
of all concerned. Bach Judge will he fur- 
nished with a ballot upon which it printed 
the contestanti name, and wjt-n the last 
entry has finished his song they will select 
the winner In accordance with the rule« 

foveming tho contest. After the Judges 
nvo announced their decision tho members 
of (he Dick Jess Association will furnish 

yea's motion picture roan, has received prom- 
ise of every member of the Screen Club that 
they will be there in. a body. Managers of 
all city bouses have advised the committee 
that they will appear with their entire show. 
All tills but foreshadows the wonderful suc- 
cess that the contest and ball will be. 
A Treat for "Movie" Fans. 
The "movie" fans, as well as those whoso 
tastes run to the theatrical end, will all 
nave their Inning at this affair. A treat Is 
in store for those who admire the "movie" 
stars. By a wonderful piece of good for- 
tune, combined with some hard work, the 
association has obtained tho consent of 
Norma Phillips, "The Mutual Girl," to lend 
the grand march along with ono of the mnto 
stars of the film world. This Is indeed a 
treat for the fans, as it will give them the 
opportunity of studying "Tbe Mutual Qlrl" 
herself and tbe wonderful gowns she is now 
exhibiting at clote range. Other celebrities 
will vie for favor with Miss Phillips, among 
whom will be Mary Plckford, Lillian Walker. 
Alice Joyce, Anita Btewnrt, Miriam Ncsbltt, 
Billy Quirk, John Bonny, Irving Cummlngs 
and others of equal prominence. 

'Another novel feature of the hall will bo 
the grand march. Favorable criticism has 
been received from s tlio newspapers by other 
associations for tie intricate formations of 
tlieir marches. Tbe grand march at tbe af- 
fair or the Dick Jess Association will bo a 
distinct departure from tbo old style. It 
has been named the "Tango Grand March," 
and Floor Manager Harry Rogers has prom- 
ised to surprise everyone present by showing 
evolutions that heretofore have never been 
conceived nor attempted; and wdlch will be 
tho talk of the evening. Don't forget next 
Tuesday night. The cup is now on exhibi- 
tion at Weber A Hellbroncr. Broadway and

A silly rumor went the rounds last week 
when it became known that Goo. W. Meyer 
had resigned from tbo firm, of the Geo. W". 
Meyer Mualc Company, that they were out 
of business. 

Maurice Richmond, tbe president of tbe 
company, denies that tho firm has any inten- 
tions of discontinuing tie business. Under 
his management the Geo. W. Meyer Company 
has, in a few years, taken Its place among 
tho leaders, and it seems absurd to think 
that a well established firm should close its 
doors on account of several of its writers 

It is Mr. Richmond's Intention to broaden 
tho field that be entered several years back, 
nnd make tbe Geo. W. Meyer Company one 
of the largest publishing bouses in tbe 

He wBl shortly enlarge his staff, having 
already In view several of tho best known 
boys In the music game. He will also accept 
compositions of all writers, as be does not 
intend to sign up with any composers. 

"Across the Great Divide," which is the 
feature song at tbe present time, Is showing 
up wonderfully, ana Mr. Richmond looks 
forward to It being one of the best songs 
published in years. 

He bas started an outside advertising 
campaign tbat should prove beneficial to all 
performers featuring this song. 


Jimmy Kcndls returned last week from • 
trip that took him as far as Buffalo, and 
found that his two latest numbers, "Tbo 



As was announced several weeks ago In 
this column, tho Broaday Muslo Comiuiny 
open a branch office, la Philadelphia Mon- 
day. (Murray Whitman, who was formerly 
connected with tbe Geo. W, Meyer Music 
Company, will bo hi charge. 

The opening of this new office It In line 
with tbo Idea Mr. Von Tllzer started some 
time ago in announcing that he Intends to 
open offices in all tbe principal cities. 

Mr. Whlteman is one of the best known 
boys In tho music game and should prove a 
worthy manager of this new branch. 

Nat Vincent and Charley Morbus, the boys 
who look after the burlcsquo and small time 
acts for tbe Broadway Music Co., seem to 
have tho knack of convincing shows and acts 
that their songs are tbe goods. 

There hasn't been a show Into tbe Co- 
lumbia Theatre, New York, In the past twenty 
weeks that didn't have a number of theirs, 
end mado It a feature, at that 

Both boys are so well known and have 
such a fine personality tbat they find It llttlo 
trouble lo placing their songs. 


The F. B. Havliand Music Co. will shortly 
move uptown to larger quartors. Mr. Havl- 
iand recently signed several well known 
writers, and expects to get into the game on 
a much larger scale. 


F. J. A. Forster, tbe Chicago publisher, 
Who gave up bis New York office some time 

.. the strength of getting this new ap- 
pointment Moe has had a desk set In the 
centre of the offices, and already has a sign 
reading Moe Kleemtn. with a blank spaco 
after the name for the caption. 

Frank Glllen. who was connected wltb tlio 
Theodore Morse Music Co. some tlmo ego, 
Is on the scent for a good lyric writer. To 
Introduce Frank I would say that he Is the 
boy wbo wrote Blnnoho Ring's successful 
song in her latest production, "When 
Claudia Smile*," entitled "It They On'y 
Move Old Ireland Over Here." _ 

Frank is now located at tho Fulton Thea- 
tre In Brooklyn, N. Y. 


Lew Brown, who bat over fifty successful 
songs to his credit, won the aong contest at 
Ixxnv's Avenue B Theatre last week under 
tho greatest opposition that bas over boon 
given a writer. Unannounced, Low went on 
with his latest song, "Kvcryone in Town 
Lovos My Ulrl," and took so much applanse 
cvor his original way la putting over a aong

Lew bas entered into more than a dozen

loving people In these and other towns suburban 
to Chicago Tlslt the clrcoses when playing Chi- 
cago Ooliaetun and lota located In various nafts 
of the city. Bach Is not the case, Joe. I have 
talked with people In -these and other scow towns 
near Chicago and tiiey all tell dm that while the 
loop theatres In Chicago secure a good deal of 
suburban business, Tery few people patroiUe the 
Bint-line Show at the Coliseum In the U-prlng or 
show* plsylng the. Chicago lots, and the eon- 
cenaa* of opinion la that If the circus managers 
want business from these towns and vicinity they 
must come after It with their amusement enter- 
prises and get It. 

There in another thing, Joe, that I know roa 
will take pains to make plain to the circus con- 
tracting agents as they Tlslt our Chicago office, 
and that Is they cannot plsy somewhere over In 
Illinois, make a Jump through Chicago yards and 
reach the town beyond Chicago In Incllnn'a or 
Michigan In time for exhibition, let alone In time 
for the parade. The railroads switching through 
Chicago yards pay no attention to contracts made 
with the circus contracting igenta, and tike their 
own time In switching through Chicago, rooking 
to the safety of the trains rather thin fist time 
Some of the circus managers have found this out 
to hhelr sorrow, and It is to he hoped the other 
shows will profit by the experience of circuses 
that hare been delayed this way. 

The reports I get, Joe, Indicate that great ac- 
tlrlty prevails In tbe Winter quarters of all the 
big shows. They nre all arranging for a big 
season, and all Tery optimistic, and It Is to be 
hoped that when the lnyentory of the season's 
business Is taken, about Not. IB, the ledger will 
show this to be the banner circus season of the 
twentieth century. Let us all hope so, Joe. Yours

The Gordon Hays Stock Company is one. 
of the now arrivals In tho Texus colony of 
tent shows. Gordon Is well known In Louis- 
iana, where he haB confined bis operations 
the past two seasons, and will undoubtedly 
get bis share of tho "Lone Star" Slate pat- 
ronage. Welcome to our midst, Gordon. 

Several over-Jealous county attorneys In 
Texas have enforced tho old "blue laws" to 
ihc extent that to buy anything on Sunday 
In the shape of tobacco, candy, etc., is Im- 
possible. Thespians, proporo for tlieso closed 
Sundays, as they are fierce, should you hap- 
pen to strike them. 

A conservative estimate will at last give 
tbe number of tent shown. Including carni- 
vals, repertoire and ono nlghters, In Tcxnn, 
as numbering close to fifty. From all reports 
they are all doing a good business. A partial 
list of tho attractions are as follows : Tho 
repertoire section includes the Harrison The- 
atre Co., Roy B. Fox's Players, Torbett and 
Bartlctt, Ciasc-Llster 'Southern Co., Gordon 
Hays Stack Co., Fred and Ethel Hays Thea- 
tre Co., Armotta A Pullcn's Comedians, Neff 
Theatre Co., Ward's Princess Stock Co., Wood 
& Bay Stock Co., Jennings Show, Tom Jen- 
nings' National Stock Co., Thomas Bros. Co., 
and Leo Blondin. The ono night attractions 
include several colored minstrel shows, In- 
cluding Jones' Alabama Minstrels, under tho 
management of C. L. Brickson,; Dark town 
Butterfly Minstrels, and Dana Thompson 
(Minstrels. Here's a tip for music publishers 
— anusic forme a big part of all these tent 
shows as they carry bond and orchestras 
consisting of from nine to eighteen men. 
The orchestra lender of the Harrison Theatre 
Co. B. J Redflcld recently informed mo 
that bis men were kept quite busy -ploying 
oirtsldo engagements, such, as receptions, 
dances, etc., and small wonder, as I liad tho 
pleasure of hearing somo of their programs, 
Which Included Llstz's "2d Hungarian Rbap- 
sody," "William Tell," etc. The Kritchfleld 
vaudeville show and Morodock A Watson's 
White Minstrels are also strong factors for 
Texas prftronoge. The circus section includes 
Adam Fetser. Geo. Lugl. J. H. Henry and 
Geo, Ely. All 'those. Including raony more, 
and the number of attractions Wintering 
here, make somo grand total, so tho show- 
man is well represented In the "Lono Star 
State." . . 

Wasn't that Anniversary issuo some clasa7 
I know a certain agent who missed a train 
(the only ono for twelve hours, too), so 
deeply engrossed In it was lie, but nary a 
worry did it cause him— -too good an excuse, 
eaycth he. . _ . 

Another, well known agent was heard to 
ask, after putting in a fow months in ths 
"Panhandle'' section of Texau, where the 
high winds constitute the most of tho scen- 
ery, why the managers of the tent "rep. 
shows didn't change the billing to "rip ns 
being much more appropriate. Doubtless bo 
referred to the condition of the top.

"Shooting the Bull" is being handed out very liberally in every line of 
business; in fact, it is amazing the amount of the SPANISH PASTIME 
that is being unloaded everywhere, particularly in the music business. 
It is a habit to rave about every song that is written- almost before 
it is even printed, It's 90 per cent, air and 10 per cent. fact. To be 
perfectly frank, we too, have "shot the bull." Luckily, though, so 
perfect was our aim, that we hit the bull's eye and landed HITS 
Galore! Now let us deal in PACTS! 

It is a fact, is it not, that in 1913 we handed you more real, live, 
honest-to-goodness hits than any other publisher in the business. 
We'll try and do it again this year, and believe we start off with ma- 
terial, TRIED and PROVEN, that will appeal to you as being WORTH 
WHILE, WORTH WHILE to put in your act, WORTH WHILE to 
feature. Send for them and be your own judge and jury as to their 
merit and value. Give them a fair look-over! Then write your own 
verdict. Here they are! Some of them are already hits, some are 
near-hits and some are hits to be. 

The Recititive Ballad with the Punch. By Joe Goodwin & Leo Wood 

The Successor of "Peg 'O My Heart." By Al. Bryan & Fred Fisher 

A "rag" song with an idea. By Joe Goodwin & Lew Brown 

A "two-four" for opening or closing song. By Lew Brown & Nat Ayer 

A new Ballad by the writer of "Curse of an Aching Heart." 

By Al. Piantadosi. 

If you sang "Dreamy Italian Waltz" get this new one. Great Patter. 

By Jack Glogau & Al. Piantadosi. 

We have cut out all the "raves;" all the "bull," all the publishers 
usual blather, and put it right up to you yourselves to decide whether 
or not the songs which we are submitting this season are "there" or 
not. GET THEM!

To Theatre Managers, 

Show Managers and Actors 

In my action against "SENATOR" FRANCIS HUBPHT and JEM BEDIM - 

Judge Ray, in the United States .District Court for the Northern District of New York, 
decided that my Monologues which were written for CUFF GOEDOfl, under the title 
"THE GERMAN SENATOR" and "THE GERMAN P0U11CIAN" were my original creations, 
and that I have valid copyrights therein: that the use of them by "Senator" Francis 
Murphy in Jean Bedini's show, "THE HI8CH1EFHAKEBS," was unlawful, and he awarded 
a judgment against them for $1,000 damages and $665. 7 8 costs and also a perpetual 
injunction restraining the reproduction, recital or use of my monologues or any imi- 
tation thereof. 

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN, that I will hold responsible for the unlawful use of any 
of my material, not only the actor reciting the same, but the owner of the show 
and the manager of the theatre who permits the use thereof.

Dorothy Brennon, 
BaxtroiD, Bboosxtn, Fas. 25. 

Breaking to her act under tbe name of Dorothy 
Gordon, Mlaa Brennon offered one of the nest 
"singles" ever seen In this house. She lias a good 
selection of songs. 

For her entrance number, "Twentieth Century 
Rag," she won a tan broadcloth tailor made 
dress. "On the Stepa of the Great White Capi- 
tol," quickly followed, wben the change of dress 
mi made to • white spangled minaret gown la 
which Miss Bresson made a very pretty picture. 

For her next number, "Posh It Alone," she 
wore a handsome pink evening gown. The song 
went over finely, and captured the audience. 

Good taste was shown In the last number, a 
real "add" song. "But I'm Not Uolng To Tell 
What I Know*. Miss Brennon made a "cute 
kiddle." She entered, riding on the back of a 
big stuffed dog on wheels, which looted so life- 
like one almost expected to hear hltn bark. Tbe 
number went bbr, and reaped the reward of great 

Mlaa Brennon has a fine net, a wonderful ward- 
robe, a voice of rich quality, unlimited talent, 
beauty, personality, and the knack of putting a 
number over. She should be on tbe big time. 

The act runs twelve minutes, in one. fill. 

Leatel Trio. 

Ftjltom, BbooKLIU, MattKXB, FBa. 24. 

Doing a clever eoaaedy and novelty bar set, this 
trio won the applause they deserved. 

Three men, one dressed as a woman, go throurh 
their tricks with ease. Their performance on 
the ban and then comedy are apod. It la not a 
new act, bat they work away from the usual run 
of thla style of work. They carry their own drop, 
representing the outalde of a dob bouse. Eight 
minutes, full stage. Bid.

Marnello U making his re-appearance In snd 
around New York, and is making a bigger suc- 
cess than be did on bis first appearance In this 
country some three years ago. 

Marnello Is one of the best female Impersonators 
American vaudeville has ever seen, and was 
easily the hit at the Fulton Theatre on the 
above date. 

He opens at the piano singing "Oaro Nome," 
from "Blgoletto," In evening dress, lace spangles 
over orange, with blonde wig. He next plays 
popular selections, and he certainly can play 
those "Ivories," closing with "When It's Apple 
Blossom Time In Normandy," For an encore he 
often a popular number, never changing his voice, 
which Is a high soprano. 

Marnello la a fine looking -hap, with good 
features, and with arms and neck as symmetrical 
as a woman's. Hie looks snd voice are so de- 
ceiving that oa the above date tbe audience did 
not know their entertainer was s msn until he 
took oft his wig, which he did when he took his 
encore. He la clever and does an excellent set. 
He carries hla own plush drop. The act runs ten 
minutes, In two. , Bid.

Thla troupe of six fine looking acrobatic chaps 
(sll having she appearance of being real native! 
of these United States) were the cleanup turn 
of Jake Labia's bill up In Harlem last hslt of 
last week. 

Ercry one of the half down, dres*d at this 
show In white athletic shirts, white flannel 
bloomers and black hose, appears equal to the 
mates in the art of wonderful tumbling, and 
there Is an air of speed about the entire act that 
made It one of the beat that has appeared In the 
"one" metro|»lls In many days. 

And there Is ability for comedy work In one or 
two of them that makes It all the better for en- 
joying. A olle-a-mlnute troupe of expert acro- 
bats. Six minutes, full stage. Tot.

Rush and Shlparo.- 

Loans'* SBTBlfTK AVXMTJB, Fib. 20. 

Plump straight and Hebrew comedian, Ihe latter 
working the character with but an over-fitting derby, 
without relying on the "prop" beard, etc. He 
has a giggle-making chuckle and a comic slide that 
he decs not overwork. 

Straight man Is a good worker, and baa per- 
sonality and enough of a singing voice, hut some- 
what plays out tbe face-slapping business. 

Then la speed and entertainment to all they 
offer, and they were one of the two tills of thl< 
bill. The comedian might substitute a newer num- 
ber for his solo for still stronger gouvr. He can 
get a number over nicely. Ten minutes, in one.

Never rub the dirt in 
— always wash it off 

When your face feels dusty and grimy 
there's a big temptation to rub the dirt 
off with your dry handkerchief. Never 
do this. 

This rubbing of the dirt and grime over jour 
■kin irritates it and destroys its texture. Instead 
of this way. which throws an unnecessary bur- 
den on the skin and tends to overtax it, u*c this 
specific cleansing:— 

Apply your hot washcloth, lathered with 
Woodbury's Facial Soap, for several minutes. 
When the pores are thoroughly open, rub in a 
fresh Woodbury lither. This dissolves the 
dirt and takes it out of the delicate pores with- 
out the slightest Irritation. Close the pores 
and arouse the circulation in your skin oy • 
cold water rinse. 

Use Woodbury's regularly. The 
formula for this famous facial soap 
Is the work of an authority on the 
■kin and its needs. It costs 25c a 
cake. No one hesitates at theprice

Hugh D. Mcintosh, governing director of the 
Tlvoll Theatre, said: 

"It Is absolute nonsense to talk of boycotting 
Australian nrtlsts. We are only too glad to get 
them It they are capable. In fact we are glad 
to get any good artists. It costs as £12 s week 
expenses for every performer we Import from 
abroad, In addition to the salary that Is paid 
after irrlval, and we have to pay them salaries 
at higher rites than the English pay. An act 
In which five artlsta are engaged will cost ns «0 
before they can be landed here, and as there Is 
an average of two and a halt fares for each act, 
upon that basis we'll have to pay for the next two 
and a halt years £30 a week for fares alone for 
each act." 

"Bat to talk about a purely Australian hill at 
the present time Is utter foolishness. It woold 
be as foolish to cry In England for a purely Eng- 
lish bill, or make a slmllsr local appeal In 
America. Variety Is wbst the public look for, 
and pay for, 

"Still, wo are encouraging, and will continue 
to encourage Australian artists. We have a very 
large number working ou our circuit, some or 
whom have been working for twelve or fourteen 
years, wthout a break. 

"A large number of Auatrsllans ot present on 
our circuit are artists, who have gone abroad to 
rain experience, and we have re-lmported them. I 
could mention half a doren who are with us now. 
We encourage our artists to go awty, because we 
think that experience In the older countries of tho 
world will be of immense value to them. 

"1 might mention Fred Bluett, for Instance. 
He was with us for over twelve years. Wj 
gave him a benefit, from which he got £300, and 
he went to England. I personally booked him In 
Ixmdon In tho best balls. I would arrange and 
reengage Mm to oppear here at four times his 
former salsry. And tbe same applies to Tom 
Dawson. It Is Impossible for any artist to de- 
velop and become a star In AuatralU. There srs 
numeroua laotonces of this fact. They must go 
nbrosd to gsln the necessary polish. 

"The Tlvoll bss been a training ground for 
Australian artists for years. And what of our 
own Friday trials, snd the competition* la Ade- 
laide and Melbourne?" 

Replying to other statements In the complaint, 
Mr. Mcintosh said he did not think there were 
five hundred vaudeville artists In Anstralla. 
There was no erase for imported [artists dating 
from flvo years ago. The late Harry Rlekards 
bad been Importing artists from England snd 
America for twenty years, under exsctly tbe same 
conditions as existed at the present time. Im- 
portation had been goln* on since vaudeville ex- 
isted In Australia. The Variety Artists' Federa- 
tion of England, tbe most powerful organisation 
of variety artists In the world— wUh which the 
A. V. A. B. claimed affiliation— never yet raised 
the complaint against Importing artists to Eng- 
Isnd from abroad.

""Louis Meyer has Just bought out nil tb» 
original sharobolderB In tbo Strand Tbenlro. 
ana 1b now the leaseholder for ninety years. 
It was built as the Wnldorff, and run by ftp 
Shubcrts at tbe outset. Then It became the 
Whitney Theatre, but with no better luck. 
But "Mr. Wu" looks as though It might run 
there till further orders. A week hence Mr. 
Meyer sails for New York. Ho has bad 'in 
Interesting career. A fairly Bkilled artist In 
black and white himself, be made bis Hut 
money as a dealer In curios. He bas many 
quaint looking art stores. lie backed s two- 
rent newspaper and made money at that — 
London Opinion by name. Then he made a 
pile out of "The Glad Kyc," and went head- 
long Into theatrical management, lie rarc'y 
makes a mistake. Horse racing is his side 
line. And his luck docs not leave him (note I 
"A Pair of Silk Stockings," Cyril Ilnr- 
court's new farce, produced at the Criterion 
Theatre on Monday by Mary Moore's son, 
Itronson Albcry, and Allan AyncBWorth, who 
havo taken a lease of this house, owes n good 
deal to the personality of I<ottlo Venue, as 
any ploy nmst In which that wonderful 
.woman should appear. But It Is nn effective 
composition of its kind. Hnm Thornhlll, a 

Kooa-honrtcd, stupid creature, was divorced 
y his impulsive wife — be had not the energy 
or the Intelligence to dissipate her suspicions, 
which were quite unfounded. A while Inter 
Sam formed one of a house party at witty 
Did Lady Cowers. They wcro to give an 
amateur performance of "Caste," and Sam 
was to play old Kccloa. Who should arrive, 
all unexpectedly, thanks to a motor smash, 
but Mrs. Thornhlll. It was embarrassing, 
ut Sam was not sorry, for be loved his wife 
nd wanted to make friends. Disguised to 
be beard and rough clothes he had procured 
or his Eccloa make-up. bo hid himself in tbe 
'•droom reserved tor her, To his nmrtie- 
merit she was followed to that seclusion hv 
Major Uagnall, a daring admirer. Sam 
snorted with rage and was dragged from his 
hiding place. Neither of the parties recog- 
nized blm. They took him lor a burplnr, 
overpowered him, tied him up wltb madamo'r 
silk stockings and flung him Into a bath- 
room, from which, when reinforcements ar- 
rived, he had escaped. Nobody believed tbe 
burglar story, and so Mrs. Thornhlll and 
Uagnall were In a very scandalous predica- 
ment till Sain appeared, In his proper per- 
son, put everything straight (with the help 
<.f tbe silk stockings), and made good friends 
with his wife. 

At Ihe New Theatre on Saturday "The Joy 
Hide Girl" had a pretty good reception. The 

music Is held to bo Its best part. The dresses 
In the Widows' Club Bcene are very daring. 

When Adellna Oenee left the Empire, Lydla 
Kynsht succeeded. She, in turn, departed, 
nnd the directors determined on a bold stroke. 
Tbcy made a little English girl, Phyllis 
Bedells, trained In the theatre. Its proud 
premiere danaeuie. Edouard Esptnosa, tbe 
new moUre-de-bollet here, is quite in sym- 
pathy with this policy. He Bays English 
girls would soon dance all right did tbey not 
sec all tbe prizes going to the foreigners. 
He Introduced Miss Bedells on Monday, ac- 
cordingly, In an "all English ballet" That 
1b to say, all the performers In »he revrroa 
"Dancing Master" are English. The story 
of the ballet, written by Wllhelm for Genec, 
Is very like that of "The First Night," in 
which the novice replaces the overweening 
prima donna. Miss Bedells and Edouard 
fcsplnozn, a son of tbe famous old maitrc 
who died some time since, after fifty years 
in England, danced finely. Tbe reception of 
tne revival was enthusiastic. 

Whatever criticism may be directed at the 
dramatic art of London, says The Pau mall 
Uazette. it can never be accused of being 
non-cosmopolitan. A glance round the thea- 
tres at the present moment shows that 
amongst the authors England is well repre- 
sented by Shnkoapcarc. Ireland by Shaw. 
Scotland by Barrlc, Trance by Bernstein and 
Sardoti, Russia by Tolstoi, America by Cohan, 
und the Jewish race by Zangwlll. Chinese 
nnd Japnriesc subjects are in evidence at two 
other theatres, whilst Austria contributes to 
the musical plays. 

Having been played two hundred tlmos, 
"The Sleeping Beauty Re-Awnkenod" is short- 
ly to be withdrawn from Drury Lane. 

Marie Tempest was uulck to rccogulae the 
failure of Norrey Connell's play, "Thank Tour 
Ladyship," and on Tuesday night replaeed It with 
the perennially popular "Marriage of Kitty," till 
she shall hate a new piece ready. 

Vedrrnne and Radio proceed to their next adven- 
ture at the Royalty to-night, a play entitled 
"Peggy and Her Hnsband, ,r by Joseph Renting, 
better known as a novelist. 

On Wednesday "Anna Karentoa" will r* played 
for the one hundred and first tin* at the Ambas- 
sadoT's Theatre. She chooses this occasion to 
comnipmornte, according to Russian custom. 

It Is claimed that Friday last waa the eigh- 
teenth anniversary or the Introduction of the 
Cinematograph to London, by R, D. Panl. 

There has been a re-arrangement ot the Alhsin- 
bra dluctton, Andre Chariot and Montng.ta J.eveau

Captain Scott's widow bas seen tbe wonderful 

pictures of the heroic explorer's fatal expedition

emotion waa profound. 

Although the Wonder Zoo and Circus at Olym- 
pla la still drawing "record" audiences the show

Two vaodeTille corporations kave "divided" 
this week — twenty-live per cent, tor the Coliseum 
stockholders ; twenty per cent tor those in the 
Empire, though, In tbe latter case the directors 
have had to take a little from their large accu- 
mulation of proOts to keep tbeir distribution up 
to the average. 

There bas been an elaborate revision of the 
revue "Keep Smiling," at tbe Alhambra. Robert 
Hales bas a skit on "tbe American Railway 
Boas," opropot to Mr. Thornton's appointment to 
tbe Great Eastern Railway. Lee White bas a 
charming Valentine seena. Marguerite Haney his 
a new song. "Tbe Olrl Who's Followed on tbe 
Street" Tbe revue is still vastly popular. 

London's relaxation of the regulations that so 
completely separated theatre and music hall did 
not, of course, apply to tbe provincial cities, 
though many of them came Into line with the 
Metropolis. Birmingham was a notable exception. 
Tbe police authorities bate Intimated that tbe 
long revue cannot be allowed. This is held to be 
a very serious matter (or the touring combina- 
tions, who cannot aSord to cut out tbe midland 
city, which, moreover, may set a troublesome 
example to others. Tbe Variety Artists' Federa- 
tion Is strongly supporting tbe movement against 
tbe revue, which It claims to be injurious to tbe 
single turn.

Corns 1 

Made these shoes im- 
possible. But Inez told 
me of Blue-jay. 

I applied it and the pain 
stopped in a moment. In 48 
hours all three corns came out. 

No soreness whatever. 1 
never thought of the corns from 
the nioment I used Blue-jay. 
And now they are gone, to 
never return, unless tight shoes 
cause new ones. 

This is tbe story of millions of 
corns which have liecn ended by Hluc- 
jny . It will lie the story of your corns 
when you use this one ri^ht method. 

Don't pare them. Paring never 
ends iiciirn. Use the modern method. 

A famous chemist, by Inventing 
Blue-jay, lias made corn tronbles 
needless. Blue-jay takes corns out, 
without any trouble, without any 
nnnoyancc. Apply it in a jiffy, then 
forget the corn, 

* It is taking out about one million 
corns a month. It is the method 
now used and endorsed by physicians. 
You owe to yourself a test.

IitAH Hin: Pardon tbe lntrualon of tbla 
letter, but your published remark, ss followa: 
"Bring It down en your own bead," furnished tbe 

I should like to see a better system of agency 
for American plays la England, sod I cannot 
help thinking that If sn agent would engage a 
certain number of actors, good readera, to read 
ploys to managera In London, more business would 
be done, and done mote quickly than at present. 

Now, before your remarks were msde I was 
thinking of a plan whereby tbe unknown play- 
writer could bring to tbe attention of managers 
bis play sod get a bearing quickly. 

It was to bsve tbe drsmatlst buy or hire an 
ordinary phonograph with a few recording discs 
and then talk his play on tbe disks, bring It 
or send It to a manager who could, at hla lelaure, 
put It on bla reproducing phonograph, and over bis 
lunch. Ms tea, bis toddy or his cigar, bear the 
same, and spoken words would show up a play to 
him where written worda might not. Humor and 
oathoa could be forcibly expressed In the spoken 
words while tbey would fall flat when read in 
manuscript. In fact, s play agency could Invite 
managers to bis office and they could listen to a 
play or aeveral, one of wblcb might strike tbe 
fancy of some manager. 

To quicken matters for managers, the author 
could send a dlak upon which were recorded the 
opening and ending of each act whereby Its dra- 
matic worth might be determined, and If such 
were InU-restlng, tbe full recorded play could be 
sent later on. 

Dramatic societies encouraging new playa could 
bave meetings, and several new ploy* could be 
presented to them, on tbe phonograph, and their 
Judgment could be naked ns to their worth, and 
their endorsement of a piny no doubt would re- 
ceive consideration by a producing manager. In 
this wny a thousand plays would be heard where 
fifty now would not no read, ns tbo rending of 
ploys Is no doubt a tedious matter. 

The author could read the. play lilmwlf on to 
tbe phonograph's recoiling dlak, vr ho could hire 
M>mn good actor to do It, who could bring out 
Its dramatic [mints. 

Tills form of presenting piny* to managers 
would cost but a few dollar* to tbe authors, and 
get attention, as a play could bo more nutekly 
judged by heurlng than by the present method. 

If this strikes you as a good idea— If you glvo 
publicity to It— It would soon be heard around 
tbo world to the advantage of authors and man- 

A play could be recorded bete on the dlars and 
sent lo Kngluid for consideration. Yours truly, 
Kuiibnb Biixsiuan.

Charles Frohman baa closed a great contract 
for a combination of atars for next sesaon. Be 
Itaa secured William Gillette, Blanche Batea and 
Marie Horo, for an all atsr production of Sardou'a 
"Diplomacy." This star combination brings 
William Gillette back to the stage; It provides 
Blanche Batea with a role iierfectly aulted to ber, 
and glvea Marie Doro an American opportunity In

vlalfed Mr. BYohman to ssy that whenever a part 
to bis liking came along bo would be glaa to 
act ngnln for a limited season. On accepting tbe 
role of Henry Beauclerc, Mr. Olllotto expressed 
great wllllngnesa to have ss co-stars with htm 
Miss Bates find Mian Doro. Mr. Frohsiun has 
commlaalonrd Illlaaboth Mates, author of "The 
Poor Little Rich Girl," to wrltn a new play for 
Hiniicho Bates, In which ahe will appear at the

did ovation after the second art, Mr. Ben- 
nett Bald that he hoped the applause was 
rot for him but for the play and the truths 
it portrayed. He further stated that he was 
through with the lighter drama, and that as 
long as plays wero written that tended 
toward the. uplift and betterment of human- 
ity that he would lend his time and abilities 
to tbelr production, Mr. Bennett was 
pleased to meet many old friends, <tnd stated 
that ho would possibly return next season In 
his new ploy, "Maternity." He lectured on

To this popular vaudeville house belongs) 
the distinction of baring the only novelty of 
the week — the debut In vaudeville of William 
I'aversham. Not only wss the bouse crowd- 
ed on Monday afternoon. March 0, but all of 
the dramatic critics were on hand to ace tho 
popular actor. For further mention of his 
appearance sec New Acts. 

The Three Renards, In their aerial teeth 
act, opened the program, and their work beld 
the attention of the audience. The applause 
it-Mowed upon them was honestly deserved. 

Bryan Lee and Mary Cranston contributed 
a pleasing act. Mr. Lee bills himself as the 
Cbauncey Olcott of vaudeville, and In voice 
and mannerisms be reminds us of that star. 
He sang some of Mr. Olcott's songs in charm- 
ing style. Miss Cranston Is also a good per- 
former, although not gifted as a singer. 
Near the close of the act she lets down her 
hair, which Is exceedingly long and beauti- 
ful. She is a blonde. 

A big hit was scored by Edgar Allan 
Woolf's playlet, "The Little Mother," which 
bears a slight resemblanco to Jules Eekert 
Goodman's drama, "Mother." It is one of 
the best sketcjea that Mr. Woolf has written 
and has no difficulty In "getting over,' for 
the story that it tells goes straight to the 
heart. Louise Galloway, who is featured, 
gives a splendid performance as the mother, 
and Doris Hsrdy. as the cabaret singer, makes 
her role stand out prominently. (Miss) Jean 
Ueece, as a maid, furnished the comedy end 
of the piece in a very clever manner. Join 
A. Butler, as the wayward son, has greatly 
improved his performance since we saw the 
playlet last 

Chris Rlcharda, the eccentric comedian 
•cored heavily. He is a good dancer, and 
his 'lint'* staff pleased the house Innnensely. 
The Sir Kirksmlth Sisters charmed the 
music lovers In the audience with their re- 
fined act. All of the ladle* are pretty and 
are skilled musicians. Their act is one of 
tbe best of its kind seen on the big time

It was tie intention of the management

work is good, but that continual showing up 
of the lingerie things by the fallB of tho

should dig up some different business.

Cross and Lois Josephine, bsd no trouble in

stamped on everything that they do. Mr. 
Cross is one of tbe few men In vaudeville 
who can wear a dress suit and look com- 
fortable In it .As a dancer he is away above 
the average, and Miss Josephine Is not only 
one of tho cleverest women on the stage, but 
she is also one of the prettiest She dances

("JAKB" irjBIX, VOX.) 

Thursday evening, March 5, was rsw and 
blowy outdoors, but Jake Lubln's "first night" 
regulars would have braved another one of 
those snowstorms before they'd have r>Issed 
the mid-week change of bill, aad so Web- 
ster's capacity was already In type for this 
review. There was no room to put your coat 
and hat any place but on tbe floor, aad we 
barely had time to bang them there when 
Charles Ulbbs, tbe nut sort of impersonator 
of animals and musical sounds, opened tbe 
show. Globs still bangs on to "dead" to 
finish off most of his Imitations, including 
bumble bee, bobolink, chicken, automobile, 
dog, donkey, phonograph, etc., and closes 
with a whistling number. The way he works 
helps greatly, but It's a repertoire of the 
"same old thing." 

A young woman sang tbe illustrated song, 
"Good Ship Mary Add/* in a frightened wav, 
to follow, and tJcn Morris and Bcasley 
offered a few songs alone and together, ana 
danced, but their chatter draws your atten- 
tion from the Idea tbat the title of their 
act Is "The Manicure Shop." Business at 
tho table might Bupplant the rough work on 
the sofa with better results. Miss Morris 
sings "I'm On My Way to Mandalay," and 
Mr. Bcasley "I Miss You Most of All/' wlti 
more class than tbe "action of the turn" 
warrants, They could make as neat an act 
of It as they appear. 

Madam Zenda, after being Introduced by 
a too oratorical affected young man, offered 
her "•mind reading" and question answering 
while blindfolded and seated up stage, while 
the man worked the orchestra aisles. It 
was all enjoyed, end do Mndam sprung 
many laugh answers for relief from the 
straight work. An extra word for the beau- 
tiful gown she wore at tbls show. 

Add Hoyt's Minstrels, seven In all, romped 
away with as big a share of the applause as 
anything on the bill — snd every act was 
Irked, it's the some speedy frolic of min- 
strelsy, with close on to four dozen laughs, 
with the singing just as good. 

Herbert and Dennis, straight and a 
"two hundred and fifty" pound comedian 
with a comic slide and a repertoire of facial 
expressions, were probably the noise of the 
bill, due to the "two-fifty" feller. The 
straight man works well, but often gives tbe 
Impression that he's striving to be Frenchy. 

Tho Three Donalds, In white fleshings, are 
without a doubt one of the leading strength 
trios In tho business. They have a sterling 
net snd present poses that appear to either 
bo lnvposslbls for or have escaped other acts 
somewhat like the wonderful Three Donalds. 
Tbey finished the bill off big. Pod. 




A bill consisting mostly of singing and 
dancing acts Is offered this week. It opened 
wltb Will Carpentlcr, doing a skating act. 
Mr. Carpentlcr Is a clever skater and does 
many tricks, but he could strengthen his act 
if he worked with a girl.

(Lyman B. Glover, manager). The Ma- 
jestic has for Its headllner tola week frank 
Lalor, In a musical comedietta, "Back to 
berth." It can gafely be said to be the best 
sketch that Mr. Lalor has ever presented In 
Chicago. Gertrude Holmes and Robert Bu- 
chanan opened, singing old and new songs, 
doing nicely. Frits Bruch and slater, 'cello 
and violin experts, did splendid In second 
position. "Fixing the Furnace," a farce by 
George Holland and company, one of the best 
laughing sketches seen here in some time. 
Muriel and Frances, two clever girls, sang 
songs in a way that made them take many 
encores. "Mandaiayj* was the big song hit 
for the girls. "Celluloid Sara," a moving 
picture drima, was a big surprise to the Ma- 
jestic audience. The cast is well balanced.

woman who captivates an audience at once 
with her baritone solos. Archer and Belford, 
In a comedy sketch, should go fairly well on 
small time. Melnotte Twins are two pretty 
and attractive young women, who slog and 
dance fairly well. After their last song they 
close with a dance, which made a big bit. 
Gordon Brothers and kangaroo are clever. 
They do bag punching and present a sparring 
match with their kangaroo that furnishes a 
lot of fun.

At the twenty-flrst birthday party of the 
Professional Woman's League. Maltla Crai- 
gin, president, given at the League rooms, 
1999 Broadway, on Feb. 28, 1914, the draw- 
ing for the winner of the Weser Brothers' 
Pianola took place. This was a 1000 Instru- 
ment, and was won by Harry F. Weber, of 
Mt Vernon, and who is of the well known 
firm of vaudeville agents, Weber A Evans. 
The winning number was B-62, sold In De- 
cember, 1911, by Rosalie Mnckentuss, who is 
one of the prominent members of the League, 
besides being the manager of the family de- 
partment of the United Booking Offices. 

LHile B. Becbslle, the treasurer of the 
League, presented the League with four 
dozen solid sliver teaspoons and one dosca 
solid silver forks, upon Its "coming of ago" 

Mrs. ASbertlne Pen-in baked and present* 
ed the birthday cake upon this occasion. 

Mrs. Sol Smith, the oldeat living actress, 
elafrty-six jears of age on March 10, is quite 
111 with neurltla of the head. A large basket 
of -choice fruits was sent Mrs, Snath by the 
League members, expressing their sympathy. 

There were so many requests at the Frl- 
iday evening dancing class held at the League, 
for another class, chat Tuesday afternooa 
of each week has been decided upon to meet 
these demands. Already more applications 
hare been made than was hoped for. It la 
quite possible that the League rooms will be 
utilized for a similar purpose If tbe demand 
continues. A very nn Vlctrola hae been 
purchased to add to the other music for dan- 
cing, and Bosetta Hawthorne Hayes, tbe 
dancing instructress, Is to be congratulated 
upon her wonderful success. 

The Literary Day, on March 2, has been 
postponed to April 6, when Mrs. Llbby Cul- 
bcrtson Maedonald will be the chairman. Tbe 
terrlfflc storm of tje former date Is the good 
and sufficient reason for the postponement. 

Francis Wilson, president Of the Actors' 
Equity Society, will be tbe gvest of honor, 
at tbe regular monthly Dramatic Day, on 
March IB, Howard Kyle, the secretary, baa 
also agreed to be present, also Henry Miller

tains a permit to occupy a certain stretch of

period of time the carnival spirit Is rife In 
the locality. All forms of cheap attractions 
abound, and not the least faacfnatlng Is an 
acrobatic 'performance In which the partici- 
pants are all young children.

Farley and Morrison, a nifty couple, opened 
with "There's a Ctrl I Take to Hector's," 
wblcb they sang nicely. Then, after a change 
of frock, "I've Got Everything I Want But 
You," with neat buslucss by the girl. A "Ger- 
many" song In dialect was followed by a 
French bit and song, with a little funny bit 
of business with the mustache, and their 
getaway was marked by good applause. 

Helen Page and company, In the playlet. 
"The Understudy," made the usual - hit 
through Miss Page's clover Impersonation of 
the naive stage debutante who fell all over 
herself In the misfit leading lady dress, ably 
assisted by tbe leading man.

came accustomed to their surroundings and, 
■wlf.i their ventriloquist stunts with funny 
repartee and actions, a burlesque on "Dr.

by both, earned their placo on the bill. A

Northeast corner of Bills snd Mason Streets, on 
which he will erect a hotel, and within a largo 
theatre In which a stock oompany, at medium 
prices, will sppear. 

Rvhob haa it that a contractor named O'Day, 
and ssld to own forty per cent, of the stock In 
the Gslety Tbestre, bas purchased from (1. M. 
Anderson (Broncho Billy), and a member of the 
firm of the Essanay Film Co., all his interest In 
the said Gaiety Theatre Co., sssomlng all mort- 
gages, contracts and liabilities of every nature, 
and that ho (O'Day) will run the theatre himself,

houses named: At the Tlvoll, "Through Fire to 
Fortune;" at tbe Imperial, 'Henna Adrift;" at

Ruuob has It that Ackerman & Harris, mana- 
gers of the Republic, In this city, and other 
smaller houses, as well as numerous bouses in 
the Interior of tbe State, including tbe Hippo- 
drome In Los Angeles, have taken the partly 
commenced but unfinished thestre at the South- 
west corner ot Eddy snd Msaon Streets, the site 
of the panorama of the Battle of Waterloo, the 
Olympic and tiie Tlvoll Opera House, prior to the 
fire of 1000, and known aa tbe "Round House." 
and have also added thereto a vacant lot on the

Tns Tyler, Tex., Elks, on Feb. 37, gsve their 
annual minstrel show, In the Hippodrome Theatre, 
which was a huge success both financially and 
artistically. Tbe performance this year was given 
under the direction of Henry Roquemore, an old

been without a theatre since tbe burning ot tbe 
opera house In 1007. The Hippodrome, a "movie" 
house, seating capacity 4B0, has a small slsge, 
and is playing a few attractions. Friday and 
Saturday are tbo best dates, as tho students of 
the Tyler Commercial College, cumbering nearly 
one thousand, are prohibited from attending 
amusement plsces only on the nights mentioned, 
and consequently, thus restrained, are i.nre to go 
en those nights. 

As AN example of how Tub Currxs Is re- 
garded, even In action, among abow folks, look 
up Roland Ashford Phillips' story, "Standing Room 
Only," now running as a serial In Tho Top Notch 
Magasine. Can some ot those self-styled amuse- 
ment (?) "weeklies" explain why Mr. Phillips 
didn't mention themt In fiction, ts in true-life, 
Tub CLti'pin Is without a noteworthy rival.

The Showmen's League of America gave 
Us first annual ball at the Hotel Sherman, 
Chicago, Wednesday nlgbt, March 4. 

It was a huge success from every vlew- 

Through tho courtesy of Frank Bebrlsg, 
manager ot the Hotel Shermao, rooms on 
the entire second floor, Immediately adjoin- 
ing the Louis XVI Boom, -where the ball was 
given, were placed at tho disposal of the 
League officials for the convenience of the 
guests of the evening. Every effort was put 
forth by the Hotel Sherman management to 
make It pleasant for all attending The SJow- 
mens League Ball. 

Tho grand march originally scheduled to 
occur at 0.30 p. M., was postpoucd until 
11.30, In view of the fact that many of tho 
profession were unable to arrive at the hall- 
room until after their engagements in the 
local theatre. 

Colonel W. P. Cody (Buffalo Bill), presi- 
dent of The Showmen's League, and Mrs. 
Dora Earle, a prominent suffragette, led the 
grand march. 

Join B. Warren, chairman of the general 
committee having the ball In hand, deserves 
tbe highest praise for tho exemplary manner 
In which every feature of the gala night was 
carried out Warren A. Patrick arranged 
the entertainment program, which was suc- 
cessfully carried out under his personal di- 
rection, Colonel Charles Andress, first vice 
president of the B. L. A., made a wondoiTul 
showing with tho advertising In the official 

The memory of The Showmen's League 
ball will linger In the minds of all who at- 
tended It, for many years to come. It Is the 
rnnsensiiH of opinion that never In the his- 
tory of Chicago amusements has an entertain- 
meat been offered such ns was provided Wed- 
nesday nlgbt. There nan not a single un- 
toward Incident to mar the festivities of the 
evening. The ball wns a formal affair, and 
•be ladles and gentlemen present enjoyed 
themselves to the full. And much of the 
pleasure of the evening was due to the hearty 
co-operation of the Hotel Sherman manage- 
ment. Not a detail was overlooked. 

Interlarded between the dance numbers 
there was presented a number of uulque 
dlvertlacments. Under tbe personal direction 
ef Harry L. Newton, of the Will Bosslter 
promoting staff, dean of professional music 
managers In Cblcago, representatives of the 
aunlc publishers provided a songfest. Among 
the vocalists who added a degree ot indi- 
viduality to this part of tbe program were : 
Walter Wilson, Milton and tfaglni, Bocco 
Vocco. James Bggert, the Pour American 
Harmonists-, Dick Satchel, Marvin Lee, Joe 
Curran, Ralph Bart, Coleman Qoctz, Logan 
Slzemore, Bert Duffy. Lew Jacobs, Billy 
Johnston, Bert Reed and Flo Jacobson, who 
contributed their services and entertained In 
a charming manner. 

Through the courtesy of Manager Hurry 
M. Strouse, a charter member of the Show- 
men's League of America, the Girls from the 
follies Burlesque company appeared in cos- 
lume and materially added to tho enjoyment 
of the evening. Never before has a burlesque 
company appeared on a ballroom floor in 
Chlcngo. The prlnlclpals of the Follies who 
helped to entertain were : William H. Harris, 
George "Red" Martin, George Warner, Vesta 
Lockard, Mnrglo Catllii. Harry Steppo and 
Buth Everett. Tho chorus was In splendid 
form and made a hit. 

A buffet dinner wns enjoyed by the enter* 
talners la tho Rose Room. 

Siiiiblc Tucker. "Tho Grand Old Scout of 
the Show World." was on deck, and the way 
she made the folks laugh was a caution. Her 
portion of the entertainment was a scream, 
as It always Is wherever sbc appears. 

George m. Hodgo made tbe announcements 
In a capable manner, and was assisted from 
time to time by Charlos Falk. Their intro- 
ductions added a zest to the occasion. 

Edgar A. Itcnsun's Orchestra of ten pieces, 
under the direction ot Horatio N I'eabody, 
furnished the music, and too much pniisa 
cannot be accorded this splendid organiza- 
tion. Every member of the orcbestrj seemed 
to enter Into the spirit of tho affair with tbo 
result that nothing was lacking. 

Maurice and Miss Covcrdale, of the "Sep- 
tember Morn" company, now enjoying a 
record-breaking run at tho La Salle Opera 
House, tangoed ou the stage for twenty min- 
utes, and, needless to eny, were heartily re-

J. H. Ebohvan Ciacus, Bahama Iulanp, 
Noras. — Tbe weather man bas been more than 
xtnd since the opening of tbe Winter season of 
the J. H. Escbman Olrcus, and business bas been 
very much better thau usual at this time of 
year. The lumber manufacturing towns gave us 
good business In Southern Alabama, aud the per- 
formance baa been running along very smoothly, 
with a great n.any new faces both In the band 
and performance. On Monday afternoon, Feb. 
M. with several membera of the profession, In- 
eluding Gov. John F. Robinson at tbo steamship 
docks of Miami, to bid them farewell, tbe com- 
pany set sail for Nassau, tbo Bahamas, and 
Ob, such a trip, a rough voysge. and even Buster, 
the mascot, was glad when the nest day tbe 
Islands were sighted In the far distance. It was 
estimated thst ten thousand people of tbe city 
bad gathered early and lined tbe banks from tbe 
Colonial Hotel to the steamship docks, to see tbe 
circus come In, and great enthusiasm was shown 
as the circus band, on tbe hurricane deck, played 
tbe favorite Brlllab alra. Tbe advance bad done 
Its duty well, tbe evening brought forth at tho 
sbow grounds a repetition of tbe morning crowds, 
and the first two days hundreds were turned away 
from tbe ticket booths on account of shortage of 
seating room. The third and fourth days were 
very satisfactory, and tho special matinee given 
by tbe management la honor of tbe Boy Scoots 
and Daughters ot tbe King's Bench, was greeted 
with standing room only. Tbe show Is now tack 
on American soil, and everybody Is glad of having 
made toe trip. 

BtciHAin Scott writes: "I will agsln be with

be your agent as usual. Some bustler. Will do 
my best to make tbe people of tbe Kennedy Show 
read as tbey never did before.

lette Wilklns, Kittle Hess. Mae Glynn, Ethel 
Miller, Bvelyn Bail, Janet Martin, Millie 
Fayette, Bthel Hughe*, Loretta Clifton, Edna 
Lcffler and Alice Dearies. 

Tbe burlesque follows tbe visit of the Ober- 
dorfer family to Heidelberg In order to ex- 
amine tbe son, Henny, who Is turned into 
an old man by the professor, and tbe two 
eld man are made boys again. 

In the first act "Only a Boy" Introduces 
Mr. Weber. "Joyous Lore" was tbe splen- 
didly sung offering by Norma Bell, and sbe 
encored with "Kebecca of Sunnybrook Farm," 
assisted In several of tbe choruses by Loots 
Thlel. "The Mason and Dixon Line," by 
Clark and Tamer with dancing and tbe 
latest shrugs and hugs by the nifty chorus 
girls ; "The Gas House Gang" was the tough 
number, led by G. Clayton Frye, who, aa 
Buck McGee, contributed an excellent char- 
acter. "Tbe West Point Cadets" showed tbe 
girls op from tbe waist down In a catchy 

"Honey Boy" was Miss Tomer's offering 
with Johnny Weber, and the chorus, In buck, 
very busy throughout la "The Pirate 
Crew" Mr. Frye led the bold buccaneers. 
Miss Nlcoll made a bit with "Isle D' Amour," 
and with Mr. Bogard, In "Ball On, Silvery 

Mr. Weber's well known war cry and bis 
convulsive sneeze, also his "outside," made 
laughs as usual. The explosion on shipboard 
resulted in tbe closing tableau of about 
twenty nymphs floating In mid-ocean. Clara 
Stlnson bad tbe proper brogue as tbe Irish 
Mrs. Oberdorfer. 

Tbe second act showed Heidelberg, and 
opened with the rousing "Stein" song. 
"Gesundhelt" was put over by Mr. Thlel and 
tbe German girls. "Just a Plain Little Irish 
Girl" was dnetted by Mr. Frye on tbe ground 
and Miss Turner on the balcony. 

"Bummer Lovers" was sung by Mlas Nlcoll 
while Miss Bell and Mr, Weber were kissing 
In the windmill. Tbe girls were neatly at- 
tired in pink. "The Music Teacher" number 
Is one of the big bits, with Che girls wearing 
short aprons with notes, fore and aft Mr. 
Weber selected among otberR : Susie Roberts, 
who sang well ; Hdlfh Lelller, who rugged 
and sang; Ella Taylor, who wns prominent 
for her work In the numbers all through the 
sbow, and Norino Holmes, who made a big 
bit wlCi "The Million Dollar Doll," sung In 
a fine soprano voice, which would get her 
dates on any time. Tbe funny bits intro- 
duced by the teaoher were all appreciated. 

Clark and Turner did a few minutes of 
singing and dancing. Tbe Comedy Four 
offend "Wild Oats?' with some of Mr. 
Weber's choice German "flchnadahupfele." 
"The Heidelberg Yaegerhaoi" number dls- 
played Norma Bell's fine figure in red tights, 
and brought tbe show to an interesting finish. 

BoBe Bydell witnessed the show from a box, 
accompanied by Viols Hastings and other

Ids eccentric stylo simI make-up, and scores 
tbrouirhout tbe entire prodoettca. 

Patricia Mackuy, tbe prima donna, wears Bne

ance at Wallace's Thentre. New York, March 9. 

Gatti-Cizazza will be re-engaged for the Metro- 
politan opera, the contract to be renewed for 
three years from 1915. No chsnges In the Opera 

Taffid her. Fran each of the four corner j 
of the car a long arm Is projected, at the 
end of which was an ornamental teat. In 
which sat a maid appropriately decorated to 
represent each one of the four seasons. This 
ear and the Dragon were built by Scan ft 
Tea Brocke. of Chicago. 

Then came a gorgeous band wagon, with 
a full band of mualdaaa, Oiling the air 
with loud melody. Afterwards a camel led 
by an Arab servant, and carrying on his 
back a richly dressed woman representing a 
Persian huty. Next we have a cavalcade of 
twenty-five knights, arrayed In burnished 
steel mall from bead to foot, their polished 
armor reflecting the sunlight like mirrors. 
Steel hekseta, visors, cuirasses and gaunt- 
lets made cms almost feel that be was back 
an old times with King William and his 
Normaais, or viewing the vassals of the Black 
Prince, Afterwards we have twenty-four 
horsemen in gay maroon with, white feathers 
Id their caps. 

"Then followed about twenty rtchly-palnted 
cages with wild animals and for style of 
smash cannot be beaten In the world. Fol- 
lowing- these, la a grotesque group, men oa 
horseback, fantastically dressed, so at to re- 
eatable, erne a gigantic rooster, another a 
huge frog, another a monkey, one a mule, and 
one a bear. Inside the expansive tent, which 
la of Itself probably the largest In the coun- 
try, la a menagerie containing some of tho 
finest animals ever brought before the Ameri- 
cas gaaa. We enumerate some of them, lie 
elephant, Bosclus, la one of the largest and 
most intelligent of hla species, and weighs 
six tons. He la attended try George Hoakmt. 

"About the noblest Roman of them all la 
the tjlacb-mancd African lion. Pomp, eight 
years old, who bas a most royal look, well 
entitling him to the prerogative of king of 
beasts. Ue is the grandest specimen and bas 
the moat kingly voice of any of the genua 
Leo which we have ever seen. A magnificent 
■Astatic female Hon inhabits another cage. 
She la sleek, trim and beautiful, and of a 
else corresponding to Pomp. Her name is 
Sose. Two African leopards, perfect beauties, 
and probably the largest In ths country, in- 
habit one cage, and two Asiatic leopards an- 
other, la another cage are three performing 
Itocky Mountain bears. Otber entasis which 
•we remember are an Australian kangaroo, an 
African ostrich, the celebrated Walapua, t'e 
Australian wambat, which la a real curiosity ; 
the sea cow, a camel, monkeys, parrots and 
dozens of others which in our haste we can- 
not remember. 

"The keepers take pleas-are In giving (he 
spectators information and in 'stirring up 
the animals.' The circus performers are sot 
surpassed In anything In their line by any- 
body, and in many things are unequalled. 
The Melvllles are unapproachsble In their 
feats of contortion and acrobatic evolutions. 
Originality also marks all the performances. 
P. A. Older, formerly a successful banker In 
Iowa, Is the general business manager, and 
most of the design and workmananlp baa 
been done under his personal directions. J. 
M. Chandler la assistant manager and re- 
ceiver of tickets. J. B. Turner is the treas- 
urer, James Melville, equestrian manager and 
director, and Major Pott la leader of the 
band. The show leaves here oa Sunday 
morning for towns in the direction of Chi- 
cago, which place It expects to reach la 
June."— Dolly BepulHoan. 

Bryan's Caravan bas commenced Its har- 
vest la York State, the attractions of the 
menagerie, and la said to be drawing out 
thousands upon thousands of the people an 
despite of the shocking weather. At Albany, 
on May 4, Manager Kdsh reported 12,000 
to the revenue collector, and "handsome re- 
turns" are on the books from Brhenectady, 
Amsterdam and Fonda. The receipts thus 
far are ahead of Forepaugb's last season, 
end the Indications are that Bryan will, at 
the end of the season, find that the "liberal 



FroiTIi cupper, Biglnlig February, 1861 


"Aa the carriages and cavalcade passed 
along the street yesterday they presented a 
grand and glittering pageantry that attracted 
not only boys, but business men to view it, 
and tbe sidewalk, balconies, fences and 
wooden awnlngx were covered with eager 
spectators, and tbe general remark was that 
Boblnson was fairly entitled to his cognomen, 
'Yankee,' In virtue of his genius of origi- 
nality and Invention. A fsct apparent was 
that only first class artists, artificers and 
workmen to design and construct his elabo- 
rate equipage had been employed. First In 
order in the long line of pageantry is tbe 
celebrated Polyhymlna, which we described 
the other day. It is a colossal musical organ, 
resembling In its tones an enormous hand 
organ, whose loud snd melodious strains are 
calculated to announce the approach of the 
caravan and at the same time delight the 

"All that tbe skill of the painter can do 
to render the external appearance of the car 
gay in color and scenes has been done. On 
each end and one side are pictures done op 
by the best artists, and la a style of execu- 
tion which cannot be excelled. It Is fifteen 
feet high, thirteen feet long and eight feet 
wide. Oo the left side the front of tbe in- 
strument Is exposed to view. In a deep panel, 
elaborately gilded, and bordered by massive 
mirrors The next novelty Is the great 
golden dragon, with fierce looking teeth and 
eyes^ — an awful monster of the deep, such as 
the superstitious heathen mythologlsts might 
have fancied dragged the car of Plato In his 
Infernal realm, or In bis fight with the ab- 
ducted Proserpine. It hss feet, claws snd 
tail like the fabled sea horse, snd glitters la 

administration" by which he Is now gov- 
erned, Is Just what was wanted. Strong 
advertisements, a splendid procession, cor- 
rect management, an extensive menagerie 
and s "tip top" cirrus are all brought to 
bear In Bryan s establishment. The papers 
apeak well of the show. Peter Conklto, the 
clown, la making himself beard. A few 
weeks ago an editor woo didn't like shows, 
pitched into tbe concern, for which Peter 
pitched Into the "man of Ink." It Is seldom 
that chin music can beat the editor, but 
Peter's eloquence and sarcasm was too much 
for the editor. But one thing clowns should 
remembered, that as a general rule It's folly 
to fight against the press. Don Rice attearptea 
It at Morristown a couple of weeks ago, and 
although Dan was In the right, he came off 
second best. A newspaper can go where the 
voice of Mr. Moneyman can never reach. 

Hcrr Drlosbach's Menagerie and Howe'* 
Circus appeared at tho Calender Lot Provi- 
dence, it. I., on May 0, 7, and people were 
turned away at both performances. A cor- 
respondent says: "O. X,. Clark and Johnny 
Wilcox, the clowns, are up to the average, 
snd the songs of the latter took well. Mr. 
Henrique and EM. Watson ere good eques- 
trians. The Gregory Family Is the feature of 
the show. Mile. Qerknell sppeara with her 
trained poodles, and Jeon, Victor and Arthnr 
on the trapeze, horizontal bars and revolving 
globes. The procession is very well laid out ; 
two bends of music being In line, snd s beau- 
tiful tableaux car occupied by Gertrude and 
her poodles, and a number of women followed) 
by cates, wagons, etc., all decorated with 

They're awful pious at Concord, N. n.. 
Judging from a story which ssys that the 
workmen in one of the carriage factories at 
that village recently held a consultation to 
decide whether they could consdentiouily 
work on circus wagons. We believe that a 
glimpse of a drrns manager's greenbacks 
overcame the scruples of those pious money 
gmbbers, snd they went to tbelr sinful work 
on the circus wagons. Burn a place cannot 
be a "concord of sweet sounds." 

The Van Ambnrgh Menagerie appears to 
hare been very unfortunate first In losing the 
best part of its animal collection In the Inte

nets It has met with since It started out for 
its Summer campaign. Instead of taking a 
route where It would not hsvo had any oppo- 
slttam it started in dead opposition to the 
New York Circus, losing sight of the fact 
that the "New York" had n long and well- 
deaerved reputation as one of the best con- 
cerns that travele. The Van Amburfh con- 
rem exhibited at Hartford. Conn., on May 
11. 12, to about the worst business ever ex- 
perienced by any circus In tbe country. This 
was caused! no doubt, In consequence of the 
"New York A being extensively billed to show 
there on May 13. We arc Informed that tbe 
receipts of tbe Vara Ambnrgh show were 
srftomaon or tbe lltb, about *325: errenlng. 
927B. and <for the VI, afternoon. 1106, ana 
evening, S70. 

Ill Is Is terrlbletttul business for any canvas 
show, but worso for such a laorge concern aa 
the Van Ambnrgh. The "New York" showed 
at Hartford, and notwithstanding tt rained 
very bard, the receipts for the afternoon and 
evening amounted to, we axe told, over 
11,676. Having become satisfied that It can- 
not successfully oppose the New York con- 
cern, the Van Amburgh has mads a allgbt 
change tn Its route and showed at Providence 
four davs earlier than It was advertised for. 
It appears that even the country people know 
when a good show la coming along. 

The Orton Brothers' Circus performed at 
Brownsville, Neb., on May 8: Nebraska City 
11, Plattsmouth 12, Omnha 13, 14, and Coun- 
cil Bluffs, la,, 18. During tbe week ending 
May 2 they were at Kansas City, Mo., and 
bad very windy weather for throe days, so 
that they could not put the top canvas up, 
bat put tho sides up and tbe people sat In 
the hot nun to look nt the show. In Western 
Kansas business is said to have been targe, 
they being tho first show over at Junction 
City, Mnryvlllc and other towns.
